Luis Barragan on Serenity
Serenity is the great and true antidote against anguish and fear,
and today, more than ever, it is the architect’s duty to make of it a permanent guest in the home, no matter how sumptuous or how humble.
Throughout my work I have always strived to achieve serenity, but one must be on guard not to destroy it by the use of an indiscriminate palette."
Luis Barragan, 1980
