Summary
  • Ricardo Legorreta is the most renowned architect working in Mexico today. His signature use of brilliant saturated reds, purples, and yellows, thick-textured walls of stucco and plaster, and mysterious, light-filled spaces has earned him a devoted following and a distinguished international reputation. Legorreta's highly personal aesthetic combines a deep appreciation of traditional Mexican architectural elements and culture with a thoroughly modern sense of design that reflects his early training with the Mexican master Luis Barragan. This long-awaited monograph showcases 25 of the architect's most recent and celebrated projects in Mexico, Texas, and California, with stunning color photography throughout and special focus on nine private houses
  • An introduction and an interview with Legorreta, a list of projects, and a bibliography provide background and insight into this architect's prolific career
