RIP - Ricardo Legoretta

1931 - 2011, acclaimed Mexican architect Ricardo Legoretta was highly regarded for the fusion of modernism and tradition. A noted pupil of famed architect Luis Barragán, Legoretta was awarded the coveted UIA Gold Medal in 1999 and most recently the Praemium Imperiale earlier this year. Some of his notable works include the Camino Real hotel in Mexico City, the Latino Cultural Centre and the Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose both in the United States. Read the obituary here
