Critic and historian Mercedes Daguerre explores Latin America's evolving modernist tradition through the one-family houses of the region's leading contemporary architects. The book demonstrates the architects' diverse and rich interpretation of modernist principles through case studies of 19 homes built in Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Peru, Uruguay, and Argentina. Architects featured include Paulo Mendes da Rocha, winner of the 2006 Pritzker Architecture Prize.
