Book Overview
Mexico is a country steeped in history with a rich cultural heritage, varied landscape, and vibrant fusion of styles evident in the architecture, interiors, and design to be found across the country. Photographer Mark Luscombe-Whyte and writer Dominic Bradbury have traveled Mexico from coast to coast seeking out exquisite examples of Mexican architecture and design. From simple rural adobe dwelling and ornately decorated churches to deluxe seaside retreats and high-tech modern structures, they explore the evolution of Mexican style from the traditional dwellings of ancient civilizations to cutting-edge projects from today's most influential designers. A combination of seductive photographs and incisive text, Mexico is an essential sourcebook of ideas and inspiration for anyone with a passion for Mexican culture.
