Luis Barragán House and Studio

Luis Barragán House and Studio, also known as Casa Luis Barragán, is the former residence of architect Luis Barragán in Mexico City. It is owned by the Fundación de Arquitectura Tapatía and the Government of the State of Jalisco. It is now a museum exhibiting Barragán’s work and is also used by visiting architects. UNESCO added the Casa Luis Barragán to its World Heritage List in 2004. The University of Arkansas uses the house for its summer architecture program.

Located in the west of Mexico City, the residence was built in 1948 after the Second World War. It reflects Barragán’s design style during this period and remained his residence until his death in 1988. Today it is a museum, run by Barragan’s home state of Jalisco and the Arquitectura Tapatía Luis Barragán Foundation, with tours available only by appointment. In 2004, it was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO because it is one of the most influential and representative example of modern Mexican architecture.
