Arquitectos Mexicanos: Mexican Architects

Front Cover
Arquitectos Mexicanos Editores, 2000 - Architecture - 223 pages
Celebrating Mexico's bright residential architecture from old palaces and lordly haciendas to homes and state-of-the-art apartment buildings, this book details how architects have managed to integrate and balance proportion, functionality, and materials in a variety of spaces. Highlighted is the idea that if one loses the concept of human scale, warmth is lost, spaces become too confined, and lighting and nature are forgotten. Individuals learn that the selection of materials, the notion of dimensions, and the use of light that Mexicans have made part of their roots generate a cleaner and more luminous residential architecture.
