Mexico 2002. Luis Barragán House.

Built in 1948, the House and Studio of architect Luis Barragán in the suburb of Mexico City represents an outstanding example of the architect’s creative work in the post-Second World War period. 

The concrete building, totalling 1161-m2, consists of a ground floor and two upper stories, as well as a small private garden. 

Barragán’s work integrated modern and traditional artistic and vernacular currents and elements into a new synthesis, which has been greatly influential, especially in the contemporary design of gardens, plazas, and landscapes.
