One of the key figures in modern architecture, Luis Barragá:n's (1902-88) influence has travelled far beyond his Mexican homeland, culminating in his reception of architecture's most prestigious award, the Pritzker Prize, in 1980. His architecture represents a strongly personal vision. Inspired by the vernacular style of his native country, his passion for Moorish architecture and desire for spiritual beauty and harmony with nature, he set about creating serenity and enchantment in his buildings and gardens.

Photographer René: Burri visited Barragá:n and photographed his work on several trips to Mexico in the 1960s and 70s. Here Burri pays tribute to his friend, reflecting the spirit of the man, capturing the essence of his architecture, and creating the sense of peace and contemplation that is at the heart of his work.
