Take a Tour of Casa Gilardi
Casa Gilardi was built in 1976 by famous Mexican architect Luis Barragán. It was the last project he completed before he died. It's privately owned, so we contacted the owner to schedule a tour. It was such an incredible experience to have the owner give us a personal tour of her home. The house has a bottom level indoor pool, a gorgeous outdoor courtyard, and Barragán's signature vibrant colored walls throughout. It feels like Mondrian's artwork has turned into a 3 dimensional space.
The Museum of Popular Art is a multi-level presentation of Mexican folk art, with a gorgeous glass ceiling that has artistic kites hanging down. The art here is 3D and colorful, showcasing all kinds of whimsical creatures and tales of Mexico's folkloric past.
