A monthly contest from the editors of RECORD asks you to guess the architect for a work of historical importance.

Hint: The water garden in a southwestern city was designed by an architect who had created a sculpture garden for a New York museum 20 years before. Unlike the earlier, quietly elegant rectilinear one, emphasizing artworks and landscape, this public space is a dynamic, all encompassing entity featuring large polygonal pieces of concrete splashed by water.

By entering, you have a chance to win an iPad mini. Deadline to enter is the last day of each month at 5:00pm EST.
