The story of Mexican architecture in the second half of the 20th century cannot be told without the work of Teodoro González de León, whose complete works are collected in this definitive book. His banks, civic buildings, museums, corporate headquarters and office complexes have contributed to defining the urban texture of a large part of Mexico. Architect, urbanist, painter and sculptor, González de León is also a tireless promoter of architecture as a cultural phenomenon. This third edition of his Collected Works compiles more than 60 years of militant commitment to the discipline, giving rise to a language as modern as it is timeless. Essays by William J.R. Curtis and Miquel Adrià shed light on the evolution and complexity of the architect’s work. Also includes texts by the architect himself. ENGLISH AND SPANISH TEXTS. Note: Reprint.
