BARRAGAN 320 x 180.jpgUnique in contemporary architecture, the home of the Mexican architect Luis Barragán (1902-1988) is on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. Winner of the Pritzker Prize in 1980, Barragán,  was trained as an engineer and went on to become a self-taught architect. His 1948 house and studio in Mexico City is bathed in light, color and silence. Barragán’s work combines modern and traditional influences in a new synthesis that would strongly influence the contemporary design of gardens and landscapes.
