Description

The Ciudad Satélite towers, inaugurated in 1958, were built to signal a large-scale urban development in Mexico City, and were the product of a collaboration between Mathias Goeritz and Luis Barragán, who in turn were advised by Jesús Reyes Ferreira. This book describes the story of these landmark structures, with two texts by eminent specialists on this topic, Federica Zanco and Fernando González Gortázar, who take us back in time and reveal the great artistic and social value of Las Torres de Ciudad Satélite, which was to become an urban sculpture that provided a frame of reference for Mexico City in the 1960s. The images in this book reveal how the project developed over time, from its construction to the present, and also shows various publications and designs that were inspired by these remarkable towers. show more
