“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.

It was moving so fast through the reeds and then dove under, so I couldn’t get a great shot of it. It could have been a beaver, or it could be the Niles Pond variety of the Loch Ness monster.
Yesterday we told you the minute a few good seats were released for John Sebastian (they were gone within an hour of our post). Today we’re giving you fair warning that $20 advance tickets for Entrain will be gone by noon tomorrow.
So get down to the Liquor Locker tonight or when they open tomorrow at 8am. Or get advance tickets online here.

I do it cuz I’m selfish. You should try it u will never regret the time you give I never have”
