 LOUIS BARRAGAN architect"

A perfect garden - no matter what its size - should enclose: nothing less than the entire universe."

"Beauty - the invincible difficulty that the philosophers have in defining the meaning of this word is unequivocal proof of its ineffable mystery."

"How can one forget joy? I believe that a work of art reaches perfection when it conveys silent joy and serenity."

"A garden must combine the poetic and the mysterious with a feeling of serenity and joy. There is no fuller expression of vulgarity than a vulgar garden."


The Quiet Revolution

“Solitude. Only in intimate communion with solitude may man find himself. Solitude is good company and my architecture is not for those who fear or shun it”.
