Title: Barragán: Space and Shadow, Walls and Colour

ISBN: 9783764387051

From the Publisher;

Mexican architect Luis Barragan (1902-1988) is famous throughout the world for his seductive treatment of colour and space. His unique persona and remarkable buildings have attracted growing interest for many years. In this monograph, Daniele Pauly provides an overview of his life and his architectural oeuvre, his Mexican roots, the Mediterranean influences, his Functionalist period, and finally the steps to maturity as a consummate architect.

All Barragan's major buildings are documented comprehensively and analyzed in the light of his life, enhanced with attractive illustrations that reveal his masterly, almost magical touch with space and shadow, walls and color - a celebration of Barragan's undeniably significant contribution to world architecture.
