In the mid-twentieth century, renowned architects like Luis Barragan and Mathias Goeritz began to incorporate Euro-American Modernist design into the existing Mexican landscape and color scheme, creating a unique and exhilarating new design style in Mexico. Contemporary Mexican Design features the clean Modernist designs of Isaac Broid, Teodoro Gonzalez de Leon, and Abraham Zabludovsky, as well as the passionate color of Jorge Alessio Robles and Jose Iturbe.
