From the iconic modernism of Luis Barragán to the brightly colored postmodern
forms of Ricardo Legoretta, this important historical document deals with the
plurality of architectural styles and voices in Mexico during the 20th and early
21st centuries. Referencing French philosopher Michel Foucault s idea of effective
history in which knowledge does not encompass absolute truths delivered in
traditional historical texts but rather fragments, shortening its vision to the things
nearest it, Architecture in Mexico offers a new reading of the diverse interests
at stake in historical Mexican architecture its production and its subsequent
reception. The volume pursues comprehension beyond built forms and closer to
the ideas (and ideologies) that gave rise to them.
