Modern Colombian Architecture Jun 7, 2003
An outstanding modern colombian architect that is able to grasp the very best of Colombia and its materials. A book with amazing photography and colour, highly shows Restrepo's achievements. Minimalistic in a way, rustic in others, Restrepo's sense of space is truly amazing. Truly a modern Latin American architect, well respected and talented. A must!
