A lavish volume on the modern Mexican architect Diego Villasenor, who is known for working with natural light and the forms of nature. This beautiful monograph is the first book in English on Diego Villasenor, a prolific architect with built work throughout Mexico who is known for his sensual and emotional designs. Influenced by Luis Barragan in his use of proportion, light, and shadow, as well as in his relationship to the landscape, Villasenor is considered an important member of the Mexican and Latin American architectural vanguard.Here, beautiful photographs of Villasenor's work, sited in spectacular natural settings, are paired with his writings. Covering all of Villasenor's work to date, including his hotels and resorts (such as the Four Seasons hotels throughout Mexico and the Dominican Republic) as well as his residential projects, this volume is sure to appeal to those interested in the greats of Mexican Modernism such as Legorreta and Barragan, as well as the Latin American school of Modernism.
