The Luis Barragán House, built in 1948, represents one of the most important contemporary architectural works in the international context, as recognized by UNESCO when it was included in its World Heritage List in 2004. It is the only individual building in Latin America that has achieved such distinction, because -as UNESCO itself states in its declaration- it is a masterpiece within the development of the modern movement, which integrates in a new synthesis traditional and vernacular elements, as well as diverse philosophical and artistic currents of all times. 

Luis Barragán’s influence on world architecture continues to grow day by day, and his house, faithfully preserved as its author lived until his death in 1988, is one of the most visited places in Mexico City by architects and art connoisseurs from around the world. This museum, which includes the residence and architectural workshop of its creator, is owned by the Government of the State of Jalisco and the Luis Barragán Tapatía Architecture Foundation.
