LEGORRETA. Teran, Ana. Leorreta, Lourdes

ed. Legorreta Rizzoli


Book ID: 100374

The definitive monograph on the legendary Mexican architecture firm known for its soulful, sensual modernism. Although architect Ricardo Legorreta has been often labeled a high modernist, his buildings and that of his firm are rooted in the traditional architecture of his native Mexico. Best known for geometric and planar buildings with stucco walls, painted in reds and coppers, yellows, purples, and blues, the classic Mexican house plan is a recurrent theme in LegorretaÕs oeuvre, with courtyards, water features, and arcades playing a prominent role.
