Notes from Casa Luis Barragan:
he Luis Barragán House, built in 1948, represents one of the most important contemporary architectural works in the international context, as recognized by UNESCO when it was included in its World Heritage list in 2004. It is the only individual property in Latin America that has achieved such a distinction, because - as UNESCO itself affirms in its declaration - it is a masterpiece within the development of the modern movement, which integrates traditional and vernacular elements in a new synthesis, as well as various philosophical and artistic currents of all time. Luis Barragán's influence on world architecture continues to grow day by day, and his house, faithfully preserved as its author inhabited it until his death in 1988, It is one of the most visited sites in Mexico City by architects and art connoisseurs from around the world. This museum, which includes the residence and the architectural workshop of its creator, is owned by the Government of the State of Jalisco and the Fundación de Arquitectura Tapatia Luis Barragán.
