Modern Mexico is an exotic, sensual mix of cultural influences and a fantastically fertile breeding ground for contemporary architecture and design. Featuring the most striking work of architects and designers such as José de Yturbe and Manuel Mestre, Mexican Contemporary explores both the boldness of the new in Mexico and the vibrant and diverse roots to which it remains true. Mexico's pre-Columbian civilizations, the baroque, tile-clad cathedrals of the Catholic conquistadors, and the rugged and massive proportions of the colonial hacienda are all visible in the work of Mexico's modern masters. Contemporary architects and designers are bringing to these elements a fascination with texture and monumental scale, creating surfaces from adobe, rusted steel, and weathered timber and stone, and daringly massive spaces. Herbert Ypma has created an entirely fresh and innovative approach to interior design in his visual sourcebooks. He is founder of the award-winning magazine Interior Architecture and the creator and author of the phenomenally successful Hip Hotels® series which has defined a new and fast-expanding genre of travel books.
