Cuadra San Cristóbal

 

The progarm for the complex of residence and equestrian stables built for Folke Egerstroem included, in addition to the home itself, a large pool of water for the refreshment of the horses, a granary, a meadow for grazing, and the training tracks, which are all clustered together in a composition of considerable sweep. The depth and wealth of the roots of this creation suggest, on the one hand, analogies with a number of experimental works the international modern movement, while on the other hand they evoke the ranchos and the haciendas of the most traditional Mexico, in an interpretation hovering between personal memory, oneiric projection, and a position concerning architectural culture.
