Innovative texts that preset a new perspective on the categorization of Mexican architecture, generally classified as neocolonial or neoindian. The author' point of view is that there is no mestiza architecture in the considered terms, but spaces subject to the perception of the cultural imaginary of mestizaje. "The mestizaje as a nationalistic architectonic argument is a topic practically unexplored in cultural terms in the historiography of the discipline. I initiate my own reflection standing on the "historiography alleys" in which the political-ideological and aesthetic histories prevail." Contents: Prologo -- Introducción: callejones identitarios -- Las manos indígenas de la raza española -- La inverosimilidad de la antigüedad prehispánica -- El otro -- El lenguaje del caos -- Bibliografía -- Índice onomástico. LIMITED EDITION OF 1000.
