Sinopsis: Mexican architect Luis Barrag?n is one of this century's most?creative designers. Self-taught, he achieved international renown for his?remarkable personal artistic vision. Using vegetation, water, primary?geometric forms, and vivid colors, Barrag?n created a poetic and?painterly yet elegantly simple architectural style that transformed the?Mexican building tradition into an abstract architectural language. There?has been extraordinarily little published on Barrag?n, and this new?monograph is the only comprehensive compilation of his work-102 buildings?and 12 additional projects-many of which have never been published before.?Its intelligent analyses and sup erb illustrations demonstrate the?complexity and scope of this great designer, as both an architect and a?landscaper.?
?It presents not only Barrag?n's well-known later work, but also shows the?development of his oeuvre: from early projects, which incorporated?vernacular Mexican forms with Islamic elements, through a period clearly?influenced by the International Style and Le Corbusier, to a culmination?in the clean, colorful modernism for which Barrag?n is best known.?
?This new monograph collects over 400 illustrations: Barrag?n's drawings,?color and black-and-white photographs of his work, meticulously re-drawn?plans, elevations, and sections created especially for the book, and new?scale models of important projects. In addition, the monograph contains?many texts-a preface by Alvaro Siza, essays by Mexican architectural?critics Antonio Toca and J.M. Buendia, previously unpublished text by?Barrag?n himself, and an unabridged transcription of his Pritzker Prize?acceptance speech. An invaluable volume, Barrag?n: The Complete?Works also includes a detailed bibliography and comparative?international chronology. This book is the essential compendium of the?work of a master architect.
