Mutlow modestly attributes his professional success to a combination of luck and perseverance.

As everyone knows, the British Invasion of the 1960s brought John, Paul, George and Ringo to American shores. Teaching housing design at USC and writing-most recently The New Architecture of Mexico (Images Publishing, 2005)-give him further opportunities for intellectual engagement. Mutlow modestly attributes his professional success to a combination of luck and perseverance. But in these compromised times, it's his staunch idealism and commitment to social justice-also legacies of the '60s-that set him apart.

John V. Mutlow, a native of England, practices architecture in Los Angeles and teaches at the University of Southern California. His work focuses on multifamily and single family housing, notably for the Hispanic community in Los Angeles, which has led to his professional exchanges with Mexican architects. Mutlow is the author of The American Housing, Design for Living, and has received numerous design awards. John V.

A visitor could spend an entire trip to New Mexico focusing on the architecture. As well as relishing the wealth of architectural styles, you'll find more subtle elements everywhere.

Architecture in New Mexico. Nowhere else in the United States are you likely to see such extremes of architectural style as in New Mexico. The state's distinctive architecture reflects the diversity of cultures that have left their imprint on the region. The first people in the area were the ancestral Puebloans, the Anasazi, who built stone and mud homes at the bottom of canyons and inside caves. A visitor could spend an entire trip to New Mexico focusing on the architecture. You may encounter an ox-blood floor, for example.

This book undertakes a critical reappraisal of the notion of modernity in Mexican architecture and its influence on a generation of Mexican architects whose works spanned the 1920s through the 1960s. Among the latter are the architects Enrique del Moral, Juan O'Gorman, Carlos Obregn Santacilia, Juan Segura, Mario Pani, and the campus and stadium of the Ciudad Universitaria in Mexico City

This book explores the modern architecture the modern architecture of Mexico, with an emphasis from the early 1980s to the present day. It is particularly appropriate now, given a renewed interest in the recent modern architecture of Mexico, and as the work of several Mexican architects is now being recognised, published and appreciated outside of Mexico. The focus is on architects and their work. A series of buildings have been selected to establish a dialogue and to identify and articulate the complex diversity of modern architecture that is Mexico today. The selection exemplifies quality of design, of spacial and tectonic exploration, and the different perspectives that coexist. Underlying ideas and ideological positions that place the architects in the modern architectural movement are explored and an introductory article by Miguel Adria places early modern architecture in Mexico in context.
