The Architecture of Luis Barragan
New York: The Museum of Modern Art, 1976.
Monograph on the work of Mexican contemporary landscape architect Luis Barragan. From the publisher’s description: “In his work the wall is both the supreme entity and the inhabitant of a larger metaphysical landscape; in the de Chirico-like settings he creates, it is at once a screen for revealing the colors of Mexico’s almost white sun, and a shield to suggest unseen presences.” Barragan’s gardens and plazas are classical and atemporal, yet deeply rooted in his Mexico’s cultural and religious traditions.Item #901288
