NEW IN THE BOOKSHOP: CASA BARRAGAN (2002)

"Serenity is the great and true antidote against anguish and fear, and today, more than ever, it is the architect's duty to make of it a permanent guest in the home, no matter how sumptuous or humble. Throughout my work I have always strived to achieve serenity, but one must be on guard not to destroy it by the use of an indiscriminate palette. - Luis Barragán

Barragán's houses evoke glamour and simplicity, modernity and nostalgia, respect for tradition and revolutionary turns. The influence of his childhood home, a former Mexican hacienda, is clear and yet contrasted with his bold use of colours. Five of his house designs are lavishly pictured here, both inside and out, across nearly 550 images bound in hardcover and printed in Japan. Accessible short descriptions in English and Japanese are included with each photograph. Accompanied by an extended essay by Yutaka Saito.

Luis Ramiro Barragán Morfín (March 9, 1902 – November 22, 1988) was a Mexican architect and engineer. His work has massively influenced contemporary architects visually and conceptually, and his buildings are frequently visited and studied by international students and professors of architecture to this day. Barragán won the Pritzker Prize, the highest award in architecture, in 1980, and his personal home, the Luis Barragán House and Studio, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004. It is considered one of the most internationally transcendent works of contemporary architecture.
