Luis Barragán House - Mexico

This month the UNESCO I'll add new sites to the World Heritage List. I'm looking forward to know which sites will be added this year and hoping to have some of them. 
Luis Barragán House was added in 2004 and I got this card last April. It was a nice surprise from Óscar.
Built in 1948, the House and Studio of architect Luis Barragán in the suburbs of Mexico City represents an outstanding example of the architect’s creative work in the post-Second World War period. The concrete building, totalling 1,161 m2, consists of a ground floor and two upper storeys, as well as a small private garden. Barragán’s work integrated modern and traditional artistic and vernacular currents and elements into a new synthesis, which has been greatly influential, especially in the contemporary design of gardens, plazas and landscapes. - in:
