This book explores the modern architecture the modern architecture of Mexico, with an emphasis from the early 1980s to the present day. It is particularly appropriate now, given a renewed interest in the recent modern architecture of Mexico, and as the work of several Mexican architects is now being recognised, published and appreciated outside of Mexico. The focus is on architects and their work. A series of buildings have been selected to establish a dialogue and to identify and articulate the complex diversity of modern architecture that is Mexico today. The selection exemplifies quality of design, of spacial and tectonic exploration, and the different perspectives that coexist. Underlying ideas and ideological positions that place the architects in the modern architectural movement are explored and an introductory article by Miguel Adria places early modern architecture in Mexico in context.
