Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Fuente de los amantes - Arq. Luis Barragan, Manantial 10, Mayorazgos de los Gigantes, 52957 Cd López Mateos, Méx., Mexico

With this work, Barragán expresses himself through symbols, a summary of a lifetime of contemplation that decants until it reaches abstraction.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Cuadra San Cristobal Los Clubes Luis Barragán, Cda. Manantial Ote. 20, Mayorazgos de los Gigantes, 52957 Cd López Mateos, Méx., Mexico

Approximately 80 meters from the fountain "Los amantes" and in the northern and wider part of the farm, the stables were built, called "Cuadra San Cristóbal", which are part of the same project with equal treatment of the elements and programmatic regulation. The water and the tones of its walls link both projects with a highly expressive character. The width of the walls gives depth to the openings and porticos, which barely insinuate gardens but categorically, like the Satellite Towers, point to the sky, with colors that contrast with the abstraction of the elements.

Duration: 45 minutes
