About The Book
From the jacket:
Luis Barragán (1902-1988) was Mexico’s great modern master. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Barragán quickly discarded architecture’s International Style and went on to create works that show a respect for nature, a sensitivity to regional influence — he frequently used adobe, stucco, and unfinished wood — and, in his later works, a reliance on intense color.
This monograph documents all of Barragán’s important commissions, most of which are located in and around Mexico City, including El Pedregal, a landscaping and residential development built on 865 acres of lava desert which Barragán bought in 1944; the Towers of Satellite City (with Mathias Goeritz); San Cristobal stable, pools, and house; the Gilardi house; the Barragán house; and the residential subdivision Las Arboledas. Among other awards, Barragán won the coveted Pritzker Prize for Architecture in 1979.
