World-renowned architect Luis Barragan is known for his strong use of colour and geometric forms. His buildings have been described as autobiographical, as he is not dictated by convenience, rather his own emotions. This is evident in his own home and studio, Casa Barragan, which is centred around an oasis of a garden, whose facade is understated, and floor levels and room heights irregular.
Barragan has been hugely influential in design, with homages of bright hues popping up in contemporary architecture, interiors, and fashion. Barragan encouraged the intersection of different areas of design.
“I don’t divide architecture, landscape and gardening; to me they are one”.
