BARRAGAN : Armando Salas Portugal photographs of the architecture of Luis Barragan
Contributions by Ernest H. Brooks II, Ignacio Diaz Morales, Ricardo Legorreta, Armando Salas Portugal, and Massimo Vignelli

Luis Barragan (1902-1988) was Mexico's great modern master. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Barragan quickly discarded architecture's International Style and went on to create works that show a respect for nature, a sensitivity to regional influence—he frequently used adobe, stucco, and unfinished wood—and, in his later works, a reliance on intense colors.

This monograph documents all of Barragan's important commissions, most of which are located in and around Mexico City, including El Pedregal, a landscaping and residential development built on 865 acres of lava desert which Barragan bought in 1944; the Towers of Satellite City (with Mathias Goeritz); San Cristobal stable, pools, and house; the Gilardi house; the Barragan house; and the residential subdivision Las Arboledas. Among other awards, Barragan won the coveted Pritzker Prize for Architecture in 1979.

Ernest H. Brooks II is president of Brooks Institute of Photography, Santa Barbara. Ignacio Diaz Morales and Ricardo Legorreta are two of Mexico's most famed architects. Armando Salas Portugal is the renowned ' Mexican photographer who was Barragan's official photographer for most of his career. Massimo Vignelli is the eminent American graphic designer.
