Phylosophy

“It is alarming that publications devoted to architecture have banished from their
pages the words Beauty, Inspiration, Magic, Spellbound, Enchantment, as well
as the concepts of Serenity, Silence, Intimacy and Amazement All these have
nestled in my soul, and though I am fully aware that I have not done them
complete justice in my work, they have never ceased to be my guiding lights.”
Luis Barragán
