Luis Barragán Morfín was born in Guadalajara and graduated as a civil engineer. He left an extensive legacy, from renowned texts, conferences, buildings, houses, and gardens that are still in use today. While Barragán was known for his far-reaching research in customs and traditions, above all, the architect spent his life in contemplation. His sensitivity to the world and continued effort to rewrite the mundane has made him a lasting figure in Mexico, and the world.

Undoubtedly, Barragán's legacy represents something so complex and timeless that it continues to inspire and amaze architects of all generations. At ArchDaily, we believe that it is essential to immerse ourselves in information, images, and architecture. Below, an extensive guide to the architecture of Luis Barragán in Mexico City and Guadalajara.
