The latest volume in this much-enjoyed series of pocket-sized guide books on pivotal 20th-century Mexican architects features the work of Félix Candela (1910 1997). The Spanish-born and German-educated Candela was forced to leave his homeland after fighting against Franco. He later fled to Mexico, where he cultivated his architectural career. Candela is noted for his stunning use of concrete construction for thin-shell hyperbolic paraboloids and domed structures. From more than 500 completed projects, 45 noted works are highlighted along with detailed maps of the featured cities, 109 photographs and 31 beautiful architectural drawings. Juan O Gorman and Luis Barragán are a part of the same series of books designed not only for historians of architecture but also any interested traveler.
