Luis Barragán & Color Blocking

While not the only architect that used large washes of color, Luis Barragán is the most identifiable and his work has inspired the choice of locations.these days. 
  
About Mr. Barragán from Bassam Fellows:
Barragán, born in 1902, believed that the combination of architecture and color could be completely transportive. When he was awarded the 1980 Pritzker Prize, the committee called his buildings "a sublime act of the poetic imagination," recognizing their ability to offer spiritual elevation, harmony and a deep connection to nature. 
Barragán thought of his houses as almost spiritual refuges that offered seclusion, privacy, and tranquility. These elements were conveyed with few windows, a sense of hide-and-reveal between intimate and social spaces, and eclectic décor that included everything from works by Joseph Beuys to crucifixes and folkloric totems. And of course, there was color. Lots of it. In Barragán’s eyes, color, more than any other element, had the ability to transcend the corporeal, trigger memory and access the sacred. In his own words: “who can ever describe the vividness, the profusion of light and color?”
