En El Mundo de Luis Barragán
Published in Artes de Mexico, June 1, 1999
Softcover, 96 pages, entire issue devoted to Barragán. Text in Spanish with a complete translation into English
This issue is dedicated to the world of Luis Barragán. Though it examines the man among his things, it also benefits from the entirely novel possibility of exploring diverse documents related to the artist. Among the different articles featured in this issue is an excerpt from a longer study on the personal library and archive of Luis Barragán. . . A parallel effort was undertaken to preserve and promote the estate of Luis Barragán by converting his Mexico City residence into a center. The house is perhaps the architect’s most significant work; having now been acquired by the Government of Jalisco, it will be preserved as an important cultural complex.
