Contemporary Mexican Architecture: Continuing the Legacy of Luis Barragán


Member Price

Contemporary Mexican Architecture: Continuing the Legacy of Luis Barragán showcases the work of twenty-six Mexican architects who have a wide variety of impressive architectural design styles. Mexico's contemporary architecture was inspired by the vision of Luis Barragán, one of Mexico's most influential 20th century architects. Containing color photos and architectural plans, it takes readers into a world of creativity and beauty, a world whose roots go back centuries.

These same architects succeed in creating their own version of modernism, imbuing it with the warmth and vibrancy of their native Mexico, featuring clean lines and raw color combinations. Yet their work is infused with a modern ingenuity all their own. Each architect's work is featured in a dedicated chapter showing one of their recent projects. Today's Mexican architects, both young and old, bring a new level of creativity to Mexico's architectural tradition. Written by Sandy Baum, with introductions by Juan Pablo Serrano Orozco, Juan Carlos Name-Sierra, and Gilberto L. Rodriguez.
