About the Architect Ricardo and Victor Legorreta

With an impressive architecture of pure volumes, Ricardo Legorreta made colours, light and shadow the defining characteristics of his work. Early on, he worked for renowned Mexican architect José Villagrán. A friend and protégé of the great Mexican modernist, Luis Barragán, Legorreta founded his own studio in 1965. In the early 90’s his son Victor joined the firm, that was later renamed as Legorreta + Legorreta.

Internationally recognized Legorreta designed a myriad of museums, universities, hotels and private homes around the world. Among his better-known works is the iconic deep pink and yellow fronted Camino Real Hotel in Mexico City. Legorreta received countless awards, among them the Gold Medal of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Gold Medal of the Union International des Architectes (UIA) and in 2011 he received the Praemium Imperiale, awarded by the imperial family of Japan, on behalf the Japan Art Association. Legorreta died in December 2011.

Francisco Cortina, who started collaborating with Legorreta in 1998, was the associate architect for the project. He established his own practice in Sweden in 2005, and in 2013 joined forces with Robert Käll under Cortina & Käll, a multi-disciplinary architecture studio working internationally.
