Mexican Contemporary (World Design) Paperback – September 1, 2010. by Herbert Ypma (Author). I especially appreciated his focus on such basics as Geometry, Texture, and Mythology that make Mexico so vital. For each element and for periods when the country’s society was in upheaval, Ypma offers an explanation and connects the two.

With this series of visual sourcebooks for designers, architects, artists, and everyone interested in home decoration, Herbert Ypma has created an innovative approach to interior design. Here are some of the most outstanding recent projects by Mexican architects and designers such as Jose de Yturbe, Manuel Mestre, Luis Barragán, and Ricardo Legorreta.

A lot of contemporary Mexican design still draws on techniques from the past, which gives it a traditional feel. You’ve probably heard it before but having imperfections in your work is humanizing and can be very refreshing in an industry saturated with digital media. Take note from traditional Mexican handicrafts and folk art and utilize hand drawn elements and gritty textures to give you work that personal touch. The textured elements of these posters keep this brand of soft drink casual and approachable. Book Format: Paperback.

This book is nice but not great. The photography is pre-digital and it shows, while the buildings featured are great, I was longing for much more. This book is for the casual reader not the student of architecture. It lacks substance and depth on the topic. As an introductory piece, or for the curious a good book.

Very good book, straight to the point. Good photography, but this is not a coffee table book. this book analyses the influence of the traditional in the architecture by some of the best architects, and does it well. Read it from beginning to end in two days, I am probably going back for another read.

This little paperbook is chock full of amazing architecture and colour palettes of beautiful Mexico. So many of the design books on Mexico are dated or pigeon-holed into one design/cultural look while this treasure explores the modern contemporary side of Mexico. Perhaps it is too fabulous as friends have borrowed it and I have yet to keep it on the shelf.

I love Mexican design, architecture and colors, and over the years have collected several books of this type. This is one of the best, both in the beauty of its photos and their breadth. If you're looking for design and color ideas that reflect what you've experienced traveling through Latin America, this is a good starting point.

The book was simply placed into a plastic bag and mailed. When it arrived, the mailman folded the package to fit it in the mailbox and the book was damaged along the backing. I had to place it under a heavy stack of books to get it to its correct form again.

Author Herbert Ypma presents a handsome review of Mexican design with ample consideration of the historical antecedents and of the elements that underpin the artistry and craftsmanship of Mexican style. I especially appreciated his focus on such basics as Geometry, Texture, and Mythology that make Mexico so vital. For each element and for periods when the country’s society was in upheaval, Ypma offers an explanation and connects the two. For instance, he relates the cultural revolution the country underwent in the 1920s and 1930s and links it to the discovery of oil and Mexico’s dodging involvement in World War II.

Mexican Contemporary is a lush volume with 179 full-color photographs, many full page or double page spreads of an architectural detail, such as a fountainhead carved from stone gushing water with a dense blue wall in the background. Several of these images afford the reader an opportunity for a close-up view. Sometimes it seems more like a meditation on a theme or image, Striking also are the shadows captured in many of the photographs, like an essential element of color itself, how it appears in different light. With such beautiful photography, it seems almost unfair to comment that so many large scale close-ups can also create an emotional distance for the viewer. With Mexican Contemporary being as much of a photo book as a narrative, I often wished for less abstraction

Bought this because the excellent photos of wall colors/textures were helpful for some interior painting ideas. Over the past 5 years, I've pulled the book out at times when I feel a bit low, just to disappear into the gorgeous photos; it always lifts me up, though tinged with envy. I admit, I never read a word of it. Pure eye candy.

So when the architect I was interviewing recently for a massive home remodel listened to all my ideas and confusion, and said, "Ah! Barragan!" I was startled and then delighted to discover Luis Barragan was the maestro and his style was the inspiration for the wonderful homes in this book. It had quietly re-shaped my ideas about residential architecture and design more completely than I realized.

So now I am reading the book, and it gives a very simple, clear sense of the principles that guide this group of minimalist-colorist architects -- in a way that's useful to a lay reader. I understand that schematics and plans and so on are also important and 'real' designers and builders will bemoan their absence -- but that's some other book. There are books that will give you an arcane academic dissection of this approach to light, line, space, color, man, and nature -- but not this one.

This book is for dreaming.
