Luis Barragán: His House

Text by Juan Palomar, Daniel Garza Usabiaga, Alfonso Alfaro.

Featured image is reproduced from <a href="http://www.artbook.com/9788415118138.html">Luis Barragán: His House</a>.Luis Barragán: His House presents the crowning achievement of the architect who was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 1980: his own house, considered one of the ten most important houses of the twentieth century. Originally built in 1947 and continually renovated by the architect, it would come to be considered Barragán's masterpiece, the laboratory in which he developed his new architectural language. Today the house ranks as one of the most important examples of modern architecture in Mexico, and was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2004. Luis Barragán: His House offers a complete visual tour of the house and studio, as well as the superb garden that surrounds it. Hitherto unpublished documents and images in the possession of the Fundación de Arquitectura Tapatía and other collectors place the work in the context of Barragán's career. The entire house has been specially photographed for this volume, with meticulous attention being given to the treatment of color and light so essential to Barragán's work. This book includes three essays by experts in Barragán's work: “The House and Its Cultural Context,” by Daniel Garza Usabiaga, “Architecture: A Personal Space,” by Juan Palomar and a detailed account of Barragán's library and collection of art works and objects by Alfonso Alfaro.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Elle Decor

Honored late in life with a Pritzker Prize, Mexican architect Luis Barragán was a poet of modernism, infusing clean-lined spaces with sensual colors. Luis Barragán: His House (Editorial RM, $65) tours his live-in laboratory in Mexico City, with its spare, soulful rooms and famous pink-walled terrace.

The New Republic

Jed Perl

A laboratory, a box of surprises, a safety vault of visions and memories—that is how the house the Mexican architect Luis Barragan built for himself in the late 1940s is described in this opulent picture book. There is something almost hallucinatory about the photographs of Barragan’s interiors, with their expanses of white wall, meticulously edited furnishings, and objects d’art distributed like idiosyncratic punctuation marks. The sporadic explosions of strong color that are an essential element in Barragan’s work are echoed in the book’s design, with deep purple endpapers and floor plans printed on translucent sulfurous yellow paper.
