Gardens of Mexico, featuring the work of Luis Barragán

March 4–15, 2019

This trip to Mexico features the sublime, minimalist-inspired work of Luis Barragán (1902-88). We visit much of the influential architect’s extant public and private work, including his own magical house and studio; the iconic Cuadra San Cristóbal, Casa Egerstrom; Casa Gilardi, one of Barragán’s last designs, famously constructed around a large Jacaranda tree; and the wonderfully restored Casa Prieto López. Based in 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 – the incredible Las Pozas, Edward James’ Surreal sculpture garden in the remote mountainous jungle north of Mexico City.
