El verdadero lujo está en el espacio The Real Luxury is Space
Miquel Adrià (Ed.)
Just before Ricardo Legorreta’s death in 2011, architect-critics Miquel Adrià and Jose Castillo interviewed the elder statesman of Mexican architecture about some of his fabled projects, including the iconic Camino Real Hotel in Mexico City. A protégé of the great Mexican modernist Luis Barragán, Legorreta founded his own studio in 1964. In addition to garnering numerous awards in his native country, Legorreta was the recipient of the 2000 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal, the AIA’s highest honor, and Japan’s prestigious Praemium Imperiale arts prize. Recognition of his achievements and influence extend far beyond regional borders. This book is a lightweight pocket edition that brings together two exciting and informative interviews; in Spanish only.
