158. Jardines de Pedregal. Mexico D.F.




Dear Kathy,

In the mid 1940's mexican architect Luis Barragan began
to design El Pedregal. The idea of developing this
residential neighborhood was to promote the harmony
between architecture and landscape. The first structures
built on the site were the Plaza of the Fountains, and a few
typical gardens and houses by Barragán and Max Cetto.
