Overview

This book is a photographic tribute by the acclaimed Rene Burri to Mexico's most celebrated architect. Burri's photographs capture the essence of Barragan's architecture; rather than being an exhaustive survey of Barragan's work, the book is a personal homage to his spirit. Burri visited Barragan throughout the 1960s and 1970s, and his photographs truly reflect forms inspired by the vernacular style of Mexico, Barragan's love of Moorish architecture, and a desire for spiritual beauty and harmony with nature. Luis Barragan is an enchanting book uniting two powerful visions—that of photographer and architect.
