Inspiration / Luis Barragan

Luis Barragan (1902-1988), one of Mexico’s greatest architects, is known for his use of bright colors that reference the traditional architecture of Mexico. Luis also consulted for many international architects on landscape design including Louis Kahn’s Salk Institute, and was particularly gifted with integrating outdoor spaces with their interior counterparts, incorporating water features throughout. Now that we’re in full summer mode, it seems especially timely to share some of Luis Barragan’s colorful work!
