Wow!Fuchsia and Orange; Exotic and earthy colors in Mexico

May 27, 2011 at 9:16 pm Leave a comment

Wow! This combination of fuchsia and orange is so exotic and lush! You know how I love exotic architecture and interiors. As featured in an edition of Object International magazine,Casa Torre, in Mexico, was designed by architect Diego Villasignor in the “palapa” style using chromatic earth tones with touches of Luis Barragan styling and colors. A palapa is a thatched-roof, open sided building or “tiki hut” like structure that offers sanctuary from the hot tropical sun.

Luis Barragan is considered one of the most important Mexican architects of the 20th century and designed some of the most spectacular modernist homes and buildings in Mexico. His use of earth and spectacular sunset colors is fabulous and awe-inspiring. I want to study more about this exceptional, self-taught architect and his use of exotic and earthy colors.

I hope you have enjoyed this brief story on modern architecture in Mexico.
