Condition: Very Good – Like New minor cover blemishes – 1997 edition

Modern Mexico is a fantastically fertile breeding ground for contemporary architecture and design. The defining elements of Mexican architecture remain the courtyard, the wall, and the uninhibited use of color – the quintessentially Mexican palette of sun-drenched pink, yellow, and blue. But contemporary architects and designers are bringing to these a fascination with texture and monumental scale, creating surfaces from adobe, rusted steel, and weathered timber and stone, and spaces of daringly massive volume. Featuring the most striking recent work of architects and designers such as Jose de Yturbe and Manuel Mestre, Mexican Contemporary explores both the boldness of the new and the vibrant and diverse roots to which it remains true.
