Design, texture, color, and space a fusion of traditional Mexican architecture with contemporary global architecture have made Javier Sordo Madaleno a worthy representative of contemporary Mexican architecture around the world. For Sordo Madaleno, Mexico is one of the few countries with its own architectural heritage, unlike other places of great influence such as Paris, New York, and London, among others, whose global, universal architecture has no expression of a regional culture. This book showcases the architecture of Mexico.
