Here are some of the most outstanding recent projects by Mexican architects and designers such as Jose de Yturbe, Manuel Mestre, Luis Barragan, and Ricardo Legorreta. The diverse traditions of Mexico's architectural and design history are reflected and re-created in their work: the mysterious monolithic architecture of the pre-Columbian era; the baroque, tile-clad cathedrals of the Catholic conquistadors; and the rugged character and massive proportions of the colonial hacienda. To the three defining elements of Mexican architecture-- the wall, the courtyard, and the ubiquitous use of color--this new generation has brought exciting innovations of scale and texture, creating spaces of massive volume and surfaces of exposed adobe, rusted steel, and weathered timber and stone.
