Synopsis: Mexican architect and painter Juan O'Gorman (1905–82) had a spectacular debut as an architect, designing his own house at the age of 24. On the strength of this building, Diego Rivera commissioned O'Gorman to design a pair of studio-houses for himself and Frida Kahlo on contiguous lots, connected by a bridge. But O'Gorman was somewhat forgotten in histories of modern architecture, until the restoration of Rivera's and Kahlo's house in the late 1990s led to a rediscovery of the architect's work and a reappraisal of his place in contemporary Mexican architecture. In 2013 O'Gorman's own first house, which he began designing in 1929 and completed in 1931, was restored. Uncompromisingly radical and rigorously functional, this design reveals O'Gorman as a Mexican pioneer of avant-garde architecture. Casa O'Gorman 1929 tells the story of this unique building and how it was salvaged through beautiful color photographs.

Book Description RM Verlag, España, 2015. Encuadernación de tapa dura. Book Condition: Nuevo. 128 pp. Juan O¿Gorman se inició como arquitecto de manera espectacular a los 24 años de edad, con el proyecto de una casa que comenzó a construir en 1929 y concluyó en 1931. Gracias a ella, Diego Rivera le encargó su casa estudio y la de Frida Kahlo, construidas en 1931-1932. Éstas fueron restauradas en 1995 y 1996, respectivamente, lo que significó un redescubrimiento de O¿Gorman y de su lugar en la arquitectura contemporánea. Sin embargo, no fue hasta 2012-2013 que se restauró su primer proyecto de 1929, donde ya muestra una radicalidad sin concesiones que lo ubica no sólo como pionero en la vanguardia de la arquitectura moderna mexicana, sino en la de cualquier lugar del planeta: superficies totalmente acristaladas o una escalera que parece desafiar la gravedad. Esta publicación narra la historia de esta construcción única y la de su recuperación, con fotografías de calidad extraordinaria y un ensayo del reciente Premio Pritzke Toyo Ito.
