Format: Hardcover
This is a remarkable book, engaging and forceful, scrupulously researched and boldly imaginative. Keith Eggener's reading of Barragan's Gardens probes the crucial area of cultural studies with energy and precision, offering a sizable number of fresh ideas and unsuspected connections. A rare achievement; Eggener's study is not only an impressive and welcome contribution to the field of Modern architecture, but also a great pleasure to read.

Barragan's photos May 13 2012
By Antonio E Mendez V - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Barragan's preferred photographer was Armando Salas Portugal who usually worked in black and white, the book reproduces Salas' photos . The reason for this is because some of the "gardens" don't exist anymore or have been completely modified. I really enjoyed the book and think that it contains lots of valuable information.

what no color? Dec 20 2008
By Richard M. Beckman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I cannot believe anyone can write a meaningful book on Barragan without color photographs. The author misses the point and provides us with alot of irrelevant information!
