Pay Homage to Barragán
One of Guadalajara's famed native sons was Luís Barragán, winner of the prestigious Pritzker Prize and considered by many scholars and critics to have been Mexico's best 20th-century architect. Though the majority of his masterworks were built in Mexico City, he designed this house in Guadalajara for his friend and former presidential candidate, Efraín González Luna, between 1929 and 1930. Today, the house is operated by the city's Jesuit University; it is open to the public as a museum and cultural center. Visitors can take guided tours during which they'll learn more about Barragán and his particular architectural preoccupations; they can also enjoy temporary art and historical exhibits.
