LUIS BARRAGÁN (1902-
With the award of the Pritzker Prize in 1980, Barragán achieved international recognition and acclaim for his poetic architectural style. The buildings and landscape projects that he realized, all of which are in his home country, exemplify his ability to fuse the structural tenets of traditional Mexican architecture with the vocabulary of modernism. The result is at once intensely Mexican and thoroughly universal.
I THINK THAT THE IDEAL SPACE MUST
CONTAIN ELEMENTS OF MAGIC, SERENITY,
SORCERY AND MYSTERY
– Luis Barragán
