Item description for Casa Americana by Enrique Larranaga...

Besides the well-known masters of the 20th century such as Barragn, Niemeyer, and Costa, there is a vibrant and surprisingly varied architectural scene in Latin America just waiting to be discovered. Cultural diversity, an understanding of materials and regional character, a sensitive use of modern technology, and innovative yet aesthetic concepts all merge to produce stunning architecture. In this thematic publication Enrique Larraaga, architect and Professor at the Simn Bolvar University in Caracas, presents some of the most exciting single-family houses built in recent years. Amongst the architects featured are Paulo Mendes da Rocha (Brazil), Ten Arquitectos with Enrique Norten (Mexico), Alberto Kalach (Mexico), Leopoldo Laguinge (Argentina), Enrique Browne (Chile). The buildings reveal the architecture of Latin America to be diverse, unique and avantgarde, well deserving a closer look.
