Gardens of Mexico, featuring the work of Luis Barragán

October 9–19, 2017

 

This trip to Mexico focuses on the work of Luis Barragán (1902-88). We visit much of the influential architect’s extant public and private work, including his own wonderfully preserved house and studio, his celebrated outdoor space at Cuadra San Cristóbal, Casa Egerstrom, and other private properties not normally open to the public. Based in Cuernavaca, Mexico City, the colonial town of San Miguel de Allende, and Jalpan de Serra, an attractive city in the remote Sierra Gorda Mountains, we also visit some of the country’s best gardens and green spaces, ranging from elegant colonial courtyards and contemporary rooftop terraces to fascinating botanical gardens and an eccentric attempt to create the Garden of Eden. Highlights include the flower-lined canals of historic Xochimilco, the private courtyard gardens in San Miguel de Allende, and the incredible Las Pozas, Edward James’ Surreal sculpture garden in the remote mountainous jungle north of Mexico City.
