Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Argones is loaded with 300 masterful color photographs showcasing the work of the man who has an international reputation as an architect with modernist leanings and lighting touches that are incredibly creative. Dreamy and captivating photos of the work of this master, many of them from Mexico City, are merged in this terrific tome with insights provided in essays on his work and architecture in general.  HIGHLY NOTABLE." ~Global-Writes.com

"It is always a delight to come across a book filled with images of stunning buildings and interiors, especially when you have never seen any of them before..." ~Interior Design Magazine
