Summary Presents the crowning achievement of the architect who was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 1980: his own house, considered one of the ten most important houses of the twentieth century. Originally built in 1947 and continually renovated by the architect, it would come to be considered Barragan's masterpiece, the laboratory in which he developed his new architectural language. Today the house ranks as one of the most important examples of modern architecture in Mexico, and was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2004
