Photographer's Note

Luis Barragαn Morfin (Guadalajara, March 9, 1902 – Mexico City, November 22, 1988) is considered the most important Mexican architect of the 20th century.

Educated as an engineer, he graduated from the Escuela Libre de Ingenieros in Guadalajara in 1923 and was self-trained as an architect. After graduation, he travelled extensively through Spain, France (where he attended lectures of Le Corbusier), and Morocco. While in France he became aware of the writings of Ferdinand Bac, a German-French writer, designer and artist who had a huge influence on Barragαn's future career.[1] He practiced architecture in Guadalajara from 1927–1936, and in Mexico City thereafter. His Guadalajara work includes over a dozen private homes in the "Colonia America" area of what is today downtown Guadalajara. The homes are within walking distance of each other, and include Barragan's earliest residential projects. His first home (the Casa Cristo) is now restored and houses the University of Guadalajara's department of Architecture.
