Book ID: 94517

The suburb of San Pedro Garza Garcia, a verdant, environmentally protected district of the Mexican city of Monterrey, is the site of the MTY House, the subject of this compact monograph. Designed by BGP Arquitectura, the house masterfully combines the color and drama of Mexican modernism and the international vocabulary of glass and stainless steel with the owners collections of folk art, modern art and vintage automobiles. BGPs approach to protecting the surrounding topography resulted in a complex of luxurious boxes with spectacular views. Includes texts by international contributors Labasse Alexandre, Richard Meier, Juhani Pallasmaa, Claude Parent, Jesus Silva Herzog and Billie Tsien and Tod Williams.
