Luis Barragán – Casa Eduardo Prieto Lopez

Luis Barragan's Casa Eduardo Prieto Lopez

These photos of architect Luis Barragán’s Casa Eduardo Prieto Lopez were taken by pov_steve on Flickr. The house was built in 1950 and is part of the Jardines del Pedregal neighbourhood designed by Barragán for a lava-covered site in Mexico City. This is effectively a subdivision; why do the two countries north of Mexico do this so much more badly? For more information on Barragán, see previous post. Common features of Luis Barragán houses are all here: walls of terracotta and pink but in a modernist style; large windows opening onto gardens; minimalist slab wood furniture including cantilevered tables; traditional beamed ceilings; carefully placed skylights and lightwells and in general a sensitivity to the behaviour of light; and carefully proportioned rooms.
