Luis Barragan Quote of the Week from Greg Bover

“A garden must combine the mysterious and the poetic with a sense of joy and serenity”

Luis Barragan (1902-1988)

A native of Guadalajara, Mexico, Barragan first studied engineering but moved toward architecture after coming under the influence of the French-German writer Ferdinand Bac and Le Corbusier. Best known for his modernist work of simple shapes expressed in bright colors, Barragan rejected functionalism for what he called “emotional architecture.” He was the second person to be awarded the Pritzker Prize (1980). His house and studio in Mexico City are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
