Overview

Mexico's contemporary architecture was inspired by the vision of Luis Barragán, one of Mexico's most influential 20th century architects. This unique book showcases the original work of 26 contemporary Mexican architects, with a wide variety of impressive architectural designs. Containing over 370 full 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.
