Bought this a while ago (back then for a more student-friendly price) and still love it. Any one who is interested in architecture, Barragan or Mexican culture will enjoy this book. It has beautiful pictures and clear comments and background info.

Barragan: The Complete Works 17 Dec. 2003
By Michael Webb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I extolled the first edition of this definitive, splendidly illustrated survey when it appeared in 1996, and urge you to add it to your shelves if you haven't already. Luis Barragan (1902-88) was a master of earthy yet sophisticated buildings that had nothing to do with style and look better with every year that passes. This revised edition is little changed, but for an update of the bibliography and a perceptive essay by Antonio Ruiz Barbarin, from which I learned that Barragan was an almost exact contemporary of Marcel Breuer, Lucio Costa, Arne Jacobsen, and Ivan Leonidov. Truly a vintage year! (Michael Webb is the book reviewer for LA Architect magazine.)

Not what it could be. 17 Feb. 2006
By Sol - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
For a book titled The Complete Works, this book visually falls short. Many of the pictures are smaller and in black and white - not providing enough photos to be a really valuable visual research tool.
Very few good photos 4 Mar. 2015
By Kent Wang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Very few good photos, much of them in black and white. You can find much better photos on the internet.
