About this title

Synopsis:

$50.00 hardcover 1-58685-088-1 November 10 x 10 in, 200 pp, 175 Color Photographs, 20 Black & White Photographs, Rights: W, Architecture The architecture of Mexico is some of the most striking and vivid of any in the world, characterized by open spaces, garden living, and vibrant colors. In the mid-twentieth century, renowned architects like Luis Barragan and Mathias Goeritz began to incorporate Euro-American Modernist design into the existing Mexican landscape and color scheme, creating a unique and exhilarating new design style in Mexico. Contemporary Mexican Design features the clean Modernist designs of Isaac Broid, Teodoro Gonzalez de Leon, and Abraham Zabludovsky, as well as the passionate color of Jorge Alessio Robles and Jose Iturbe. Khristaan Villela is director of the Thaw Art History Center and assistant professor of Art History at the College of Santa Fe in New Mexico. He received his doctorate from the University of Texas at Austin in the history of art. He lives in Santa Fe. Ellen Bradbury Reid has worked throughout the southwestern United States and Mexico. She has a master's degree from the University of New Mexico and has worked at the Beinecke Library at Yale University on the papers of Mabel Dodge Luhan. She lives in Sante Fe, where she is currently the director of Recursos de Santa Fe. Logan Wagner is an architect and builder with extensive knowledge of both traditional and contemporary Mexican architecture. He was raised and educated in Mexico, where he studied anthropology and architecture before coming to the United States to obtain a doctorate in architectural history from the University of Texas at Austin. He lives in Austin.
