The Barragán Lectures #1: Luis Carranza

Vitra Schaudepot
On 16/03/2023
Luis Barragán is regarded as one of the most important Mexican architects of the twentieth century. His architectural idiom fused the austere vocabulary of the International Style with vernacular Mexican elements to produce an unmistakable expressiveness all his own. On this occasion, the Vitra Design Museum, in cooperation with the Barragan Foundation, will organise a series of lectures and discussions that will examine Barragán's work from different perspectives and make it more accessible to a broader audience. The first lecture will be given by Luis Carranza, professor of architecture at the Columbia University and the Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island, who will present Barragán in the context of Latin American modernism.
