Dr. Jennie Hirsh is a fabulous lecturer! I really enjoyed how she weaved Barragán's concepts, architecture history, art history, and contemporary art, to give us a 360 breadth of his influence and background. Her presentation also made us feel as if we were on actual tours of Barragán's famous sites. My wife and I are truly inspired by this lecture-- even our 10 year old daughter paid full attention and enjoyed Dr. Hirsh's lecture!!! Highly recommend this and can't wait to learn more from Jennie.
What a fascinating presentation on architect Luis Barragan! The photos, detailed floorplans, and video clips that Jennie used throughout the presentation really made the various houses and buildings come alive. I am inspired to include Mexico City on my next trip to North America! I look forward to attending more architectural seminars with Jennie Hirsh.
Being a newbie to the work of Barragan, I'm ready to travel to Mexico City to see his work. His use of color and light and space are so interesting. The story about his archives is fascinating!
Fabulous lecture. I learned so much about the art/architecture of Luis Barragan, his legacy, influence on contemporary artists, and the controversy of his archive. The suggested follow up movie was very intriguing.
Dr. Jennie Hirsch did a wonderful job of leading me down memory lane as she took us to the many Barragan sites in Mexico City. A few years ago, I had taken the all day Barragan tour from thetravelingbeetle.com with an architect as my driver/guide for the day. It was wonderful to learn new facts from Dr. Hirsh's studies of the Barragan sites. My favorite was the Chapel in Tlalpan - the colors are magical and Dr. Hirsh's photos caught the mood of that special place.
