Pritzker-winning architect Luis Barragán’s works might seem like relics of the past to some, but his first masterpiece, which still stands in Guadalajara, is as magnificent as ever.
The house was commissioned in 1928 by Efraín González Luna (who later became one of the founding ideologues of the Partido Acción Nacional, PAN). Around that time, the Tapatía school of architecture was born, seeking to create architecture that represented the state of Jalisco by combining the villa with rural and hacienda architecture. Barragán was a passionate member of the group.
