Draw Nature Poetically:Víctor Legorreta x Mexico

Mexico 2022-09-19

We design for people that use constructions with color, light and style.

In Víctor Legorreta’s Masterclass, he will give a short introduction on the office and relationship with luis barragan . Afterwards, he shall be presenting a wide range of projects from residences located not only in Mexico, but also in other parts of the world.Each of the houses that are presented will show the firm’s compromise to adapt to its context and demonstrate the extensive usage of local materials. This use of endemic materials offer a varied sampling of rock, quarried stone, brick, wood, concrete, glass and ceramics taken from the regions where they are built.

Art has always played a crucial role in our projects, so art in dwellings is no exception. LEGORRETA has been vocal of incorporating the artists in the very initial phases of each project, and we are proud exporters of Mexican talent. From the time we undertake the very first sketches, or in the preliminary design phases, we look at whether a visual artist should be included. 

We don’t hesitate to call on artists if we think their work can enrich the final project’s outcome. In a first instance, obviously, our selection responds to the nature and purpose of the project, and later to  its format and the materials—characteristic of the way each artist embodies his or her creativity—that would best accentuate the essence of a given space. One of the advantages of commissioning artworks from the very launch   of a project is that throughout the development process it allows us to combine artists’ concepts with our own so    that art and architecture nurture one another and blend into the overall project.
