Gilardi House (ENG ED.)


Barragan´s Last Witness
José Luis Alvarez Tinajero, Martín Luque Pérez

Casa Gilardi was the last built project of Pritzker Prize winner Luis Barragan´s prolific career.
In 1976, 10 years after his retirement from the practice of architecture, Barragan accepted the commission of two young publicists passionate about his architecture.
Our editorial project aims to disseminate the complete story of this masterpiece from its initial sketches to the completion of its construction and provide a critical reading of it today. We will publish the existing archive of Barragan’s documents for the house: drawings, sketches, technical details, and correspondences as well as historic and contemporary photographs. Furthermore, we will include critical reflections by contemporary architects and critics who have visited this private house.
