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 colors.
This monograph documents all of Barragán's important commissions, most of which are located in and around Mexico City. Featuring color photographs by Armando Salas Portugal.
