Detalle de la fachada principal, Casa Particular de Juan O'Gorman, Av. San Jerónimo, Jardines del Pedregal, México, DF 1952 Arq. Juan O'Gorman - Detail of the main façade of the Juan O’Gorman house, Pedregal, Mexico City 1952
The staircase in Juan O'Gorman's house in Mexico City (built 1953–56, demolished 1969). The Mexican muralist and architect was best known for designing Casa Azul (The Blue House) for Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo and the Aztec mural on the exterior of the UNAM Library in Mexico City, but his most extraordinary work was his own personal house. It was partly inside a natural cave and was designed to harmonize with the lava formations of the landscape. I love the stairs.
