I bought it fr my husband and he loved it. He loves Barragan and his works. He has seen most of them in situ. The book complements perfectly what he's seen and more...

1.0 out of 5 stars The History of Luis Barragan 16 Jun. 2009
By Dusty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am an architect. There may be some published architecture that needs a lot of verbage. Luis Barragan's work does not.

Barragan's architecture and its pure emotion can be explained/expresed with floor plans and color photographs.

Barragan's work is the most colorful work in modern architecture. This book does not make a reasonable attempt to depict that fact. There are not enough photographs contained here and less than 1/3 of them are in color.

If you are interested in Barragan's history and architectural development, then maybe this book is for you. If you are interested in a visual description of the essential vibrant works of Luis Barragan, this is not that book.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than pictures.... 20 Jan. 2011
By Juan C. Orozco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am also an architect, and I completely agree with another review that states that this book is about Barragan's history and development, Although I have to say that architecture, while being mostly a visual art, also requires to have conceptual depth, sometimes this cannot be captured only by photographs. So I agree that this book is not the best one if you want to look at the "pretty picture"s to appreciate his architecture, however, its value should not be reduced because of that, and as a scholar this book helped quite a lot with my masters thesis on architecture and cultural identity, and coming from a similar background as barragan, i found this book quite appealing. Bottom line: for research and deeper understanding of barragan=good, coffee table book= not so good.
