Houses of Puebla: The Cradle of Mexican Architecture

Houses of Puebla: The Cradle of Mexican Architecture

by Marie-Pierre Colle

Editorial Reviews

A colorful tour of the architecture and cuisine of Pueblo de los Angeles, founded in 1530 as a Spanish colonial city, and proclaimed a heritage of humankind by UNESCO in 1988. Looks at native and popular housing, haciendas, the viceregency architecture from the 16th to the 18th centuries, and the shift from neoclassical to art deco in the 19th and 20th. The text is slender and tends toward gush. The photography is by Ignacio Urquiza. The glossary assumes readers can pronounce Spanish. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
