Had a meeting out in the south-west suburbs of Santa Fe this afternoon, in a fairly commonplace office building for most Mexicans, but for me it was gorgeous and I stood outside taking photos until moved on by a security guard. Obviously indebted to Luis Barragan, it's typical of the Modernist style that was prevalent in Mexico in the 60s (although this building is a lot later). I love its blocks and planes, bold colours on rough concrete. They love their purples, oranges and pinks, and the palm tree offsets these beautifully. Worth the journey.
