Luis Barragan on Serenity


"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
