This beautiful monograph is the first book in English on Diego Villaseñor, a prolific architect with built work throughout Mexico who is known for his sensual and emotional designs. Influenced by Luis Barragán in his use of proportion, light, and shadow, as well as in his relationship to the landscape, Villaseñor is considered an important member of the Mexican and Latin American architectural vanguard.Here, beautiful photographs of Villaseñor’s work, sited in spectacular natural settings, are paired with his writings. Covering all of Villaseñor’s work to date, including his hotels and resorts (such as the Four Seasons hotels throughout Mexico and the Dominican Republic) as well as his residential projects, this volume is sure to appeal to those interested in the greats of Mexican Modernism such as Legorreta and Barragán, as well as the Latin American school of Modernism.
