Talk — The Barragán Lecture #3: Fernanda Canales

Vitra Design Museum
Thursday, 06 June

Luis Barragán is widely regarded as the most important Mexican architect of the 20th century. The Barragán Archive was relocated to the Vitra Design Museum in 2022. A series of talks organized in collaboration with the Barragan Foundation examines Barragán’s oeuvre from different perspectives. For the third event in the series, they welcome contemporary Mexican architect Fernanda Canales who, like Barragán, focusses on urban planning, research, and design. She has authored a number of books and is co-editor of the “Barragán Guide,” offering an overview of her famous compatriot’s works from Guadalajara to Mexico City and Monterrey. In her talk, she will discuss how Barragán’s works influenced modern Mexican architecture as well as her own creative output. The talk will take place at the Vitra Schaudepot.
