For us to talk about color we need to talk about one of the biggest influences in modern latin american architecture: Luis Barragan.

Winner of the Pritzker prize in 1980, his reinterpretation of Mexican traditions and culture is popular all over the world, bringing color and folklore inside living spaces.
