Mexican architect Luis Barragán (1902-1988) is famous throughout the world for his seductive treatment of colour and space. His unique persona and remarkable buildings have attracted growing interest for many years. In this monograph, Danièle Pauly, provides an overview of his life and his architectural oeuvre, his Mexican roots, the Mediterranean influences, his Functionalist period, and finally the steps to maturity as a consummate architect. All Barragán's major buildings are documented comprehensively and analysed in the light of his life, enhanced with attractive illustrations that reveal his masterly, almost magical touch with space and shadow, walls and colour - a celebration of Barragán's undeniably significant contribution to world architecture, including previously unpublished material. Danièle Pauly is Professor of Architecture in Strasbourg and author of the Le Corbusier Guide to the Chapel at Ronchamp, also published by Birkhäuser.Pauly, Danièle is the author of 'Barragn - l'espace et l'ombre, le mur et la couleur (French Edition)', published 2002 under ISBN 9783764366803 and ISBN 376436680X.
