The exotic, sensual mix of cultural influences including the mysterious monolithic architecture of Mexico's pre-Columbian civilizations, the baroque, tile-clad cathedrals of the Catholic conquistadors, and the rugged and massive proportions of the colonial hacienda are all visible in the work of mexico's new generation of modern masters. The defining elements of Mexican architecture remain the courtyard, the wall and the uninhibited use of colour - the quintessentially Mexican palette of sun-drenched pink, yellow and blue. Featuring the most striking recent work of architects and designers such as Jose de Yturbe and Manuel Mestre, this text explores both the boldness of the new and the richly diverse roots to which it remains true.
