Luis Barragán was a Mexican-born architect and furniture designer. He was brought up in the Santa Monica neighborhood of the city of Guadalajara. His family had a farm in the countryside, where they spent their holidays and where Luis Barragán began to admire nature. He studied civil engineering and architecture in his home city of Guadalajara, and after graduating in 1925, left for a two-year trip to Europe. His journey on the other side of the Atlantic inspired his interest in landscape architecture, which transpired later in life. He was impressed by the beauty of the many gardens and cities he visited on the continent, especially noting the Generalife of Granada, Italian villas, and the long luscious Mediterranean coast.

This volume for the first time collects the thoughts and writings of more than 40 artists, all offering their interpretations on the work of the architect Luis Barragán, winner of the Pritzker Prize and whose home and studio was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004. The book examines his texts, installations, drawings, and photographs, creating a series texts and images that project his work from the present toward the future.
