Synopsis: The definitive monograph on the legendary Mexican architecture firm known for its soulful, sensual modernism. Although architect Ricardo Legorreta has been often labeled a high modernist, his buildings and that of his firm are rooted in the traditional architecture of his native Mexico. Best known for geometric and planar buildings with stucco walls, painted in reds and coppers, yellows, purples, and blues, the classic Mexican house plan is a recurrent theme in Legorreta's oeuvre, with courtyards, water features, and arcades playing a prominent role. A protEgE of the modernist master Luis BarragAn, Legorreta founded his own studio in 1964 and was joined in the early 1990s by his son Victor, when the firm became Legorreta + Legorreta. Legorreta features more than thirty projects from the past decade, ranging from an elegant residence in Beverly Hills and a seaside retreat in Greece to condominiums in Acapulco and houses in Mexico City. The book also includes major commercial, institutional, and educational projects in the United States, Mexico, Qatar, Kenya, and Guatemala.
About the Author: Lourdes Legorreta is an architect and architectural photographer. Ana Teran is a writer based in Mexico. Victor Legorreta is a partner and managing and design director of Legorreta + Legorreta. Felipe Leal is an architect and educator.
