Casa Gilardi is the last house built entirely by legendary Mexican architect Luis Barragán. Now the home of Martin Luque and his family, the house was constructed after Barragán had formally retired. Martin Luque and his advertising agency partner Pancho Gilardi approached Barragán, who originally didn't want to take on the project, until he found himself inspired by the astonishing jacaranda tree around which the house is built.
The building, situated in Mexico City, is a classic example of the influential architect's work—from the combination of the Mexican vernacular with European high modernism to his vivid, inspired use of primary colour—and is as much an abstract expressionist mood piece as it is a much-loved residence.
