Item description for Barragan: Space and Shadow, Walls and Colour by Danielle Pauly...
Mexican architect Luis Barragn (1902-1988) is famous throughout the world for his seductive treatment of colour and space. His unique persona and remarkable buildings have attracted growing interest for many years. In this monograph, Danile Pauly, provides an overview of his life and his architectural oeuvre, his Mexican roots, the Mediterranean influences, his Functionalist period, and finally the steps to maturity as a consummate architect. All Barragn's major buildings are documented comprehensively and analysed in the light of his life, enhanced with attractive illustrations that reveal his masterly, almost magical touch with space and shadow, walls and colour - a celebration of Barragn's undeniably significant contribution to world architecture, including previously unpublished material. Danile Pauly is Professor of Architecture in Strasbourg and author of the Le Corbusier Guide to the Chapel at Ronchamp, also published by Birkhuser.

Reviews - What do customers think about Barragan: Space and Shadow, Walls and Colour?
book is ok, shipping unfortunately not Apr 25, 2008
The book on itself is really beautifull and gives a good image of Barragans work. BUT I wasn't too happy with the purchase of it: first of all I had to pay some 10 euro extra at the post office, custom charges they told me. Didn't know that if you buy something at this site US you have to pay some 20% custom charges on top. Besides that the cover (hard cover) of the book was damaged on the frontsite which is quite a pitty for a nice book like that; I must say that for such a trip the book was not well rapped nor protected.
