Barragan is Mexico's pride and joy. His architecture dots not only his native land, but has expanded much beyond.

Scranton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. W W Norton & Co Inc 1995 0393701980 / 9780393701982 Cloth Hardcover New New Octavo 
Baldwin said that his concept of the house in the future would be "one which would hardly be seen. It would provide, in as transparent a way as possible, protection against the elemtns . . It would be an NEW BOOK and DJ. Baldwin pushed the envelope of space in a beautiful garden. Inside would be a tranquil, quiet place fromj which to look at the outside." With an introduction to his work like that, it is enticing to grab this book and peruse the daylights out of it, and enjoy it. It is a lovely book, greatly illustrated, and we think you will enjoy and be inspired by it. A great gift.
