内容説明

Luis Barragan lived until his death in the house and studio he designed for himself. Originally built in 1947 and continually renovated by the architect, it would come to be considered his masterpiece, and one of the most important examples of modern architecture in Mexico. It was named a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO in 2004. This book offers an extensive visual tour of the house and studio, as well as the striking garden that surrounds it. Hitherto unpublished documents and images in the possession of the Fundacion de Arquitectura Tapatia and other collectors place the work in the context of Barragan's time and the moment at which it was built. The entire house has been specially photographed for this volume, with meticulous attention being given to the elements of color and light, so essential to Barragan's work. The house belongs to the most creative, introspective, and original period of Barragan's career. It was the laboratory in which he developed his new architectural language. As Emilio Ambasz wrote in a text for the catalogue of the exhibition of Barragan's work at the MoMA in New York, his house is "autobiographical." This book includes three essays by experts in Barragan's work: "The House and Its Cultural Context," by Daniel Garza Usabiaga, "Architecture: A Personal Space," by Juan Palomar, and a detailed account of Barragan's library and collection of art works and objects, by Alfonso Alfaro.
