- One of the most distinctive urban symbols found in Mexico City are "Las Torres de Satélite," tall modern structures that have lent a certain identity to the new areas developed in the north of the capital. Well-known Mexican architect Luis Barragán, who received the Pritzker award for his work in 1980, referred to by some as the Nobel Prize for Architecture, designed this building that was also his home. Barragán also made a name for himself after participating in various international expositions, such as the one held in The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1976. This particular building is is a good example of his peculiar architectural style, incorporating large spaces that play with line and perspective in an environment of vibrant colors. Now converted into a museum, the house is complete with original furnishings and other works of art from the architect's personal collection. Entry is allowed only by previous appointment.
