"[Our guide] was a terrific guide, explaining the architecture, history, and social trends in these two fascinating neighborhoods. We had no idea how much damage was caused by the earthquakes. We stayed after the tour and toasted Context Travel while staring at Michelangelo's David!”
Mexico City Architecture Tour: From Bauhaus to Barragan
We’ll begin with our expert guide by heading towards Condesa, one of the first parts of Mexico City’s expansion in the early twentieth century and known for its nationalistic Art Deco buildings, built at a time when Mexico was fighting for an identity on the global stage. We’ll see impressive examples of Francisco J. Serrano’s and Ernesto Buenrostro’s structures were built during the 1930s and ’40s along with the outdoor theatre named in Charles Lindbergh’s honor for his 1927 visit. We’ll have a chance to view an early Barragan home and compare it with his more notable work. Our guide will discuss the area’s growth during the height of the Golden Age of Mexican cinema as well as the shock effect of recent earthquakes.
