He has collaborated with artists such as James Turrell, Josiah McElheny and Isaac Julien and musicians as diverse as Bill Laswell, Raoul Björkenheim, Toshinori Kondo, Lol Coxhill and Jah Wobble.

Dressing The Air is a unique open resource that aims to enrich creative thinking by encouraging a multi-sensory approach. A constantly evolving archive and creative news feed, Dressing The Air monitors and reports on a diverse range of art-forms from cinema to sculpture, painting to furniture design, land-art to perfumery.

Cuadra San Cristóbal

Luis Barrágan

Los Clubes, Mexico

1968

A unique equestrian ranch which manages to fuse traditional rural forms with Barragan's sublime pollychrome modernism.

One of the consequences of Barragán's use of brilliant color in the even more brilliant Mexican sun is an ambiguity of scale. These luminous surfaces trick the eye and often play with one's ability to judge distance and scale. This coupled with the vast range of shades revealed as a consequence of strong shadow and reflection gives rise to a constant play of light and tone which is both beguiling and disorienting. Perhaps because we are unused to such emphatic use of color in architecture our minds take time to adjust. whatever the reason we are again engaged by unfamiliar phenomena.
