barragan’s garden

Posted in 1 by unliked on December 22, 2009

My views on architecture must have seen rays of hope the day I came upon the work of Luis Barragan. It was a book by his friend and photographer Rene Burri. I have since dreamt of living in spaces such as these, of surrounding myself with a certain visual honesty to the world around. A passage from the book, something I cherish to its every word goes as this:

“a perfect garden – no matter what its size – should enclose nothing less than the entire universe.”

Luis Barragan – Rene Burri
