Tetetlán and Mercado el 100

I spent the morning at Tetetlán, Luis Barragán's newly restored Casa Pedregal, in the south of Mexico City. 

In the 1940, the area's vast volcanic landscape (formed by the eruption of the Xitle volcano) inspired Barragán to design Jardines del Pedregal de San Ángel, a residential neighborhood that preserved the natural environment.

The house is one of the largest Barragán ever built, and is now open to the public for the first time. On the site of the former stables is a restaurant, a coffee shop and library. The front courtyard houses a farmer's market every Saturday. 

A few blocks away, Mathias Goeritz's Animal del Pedregal sculpture, lies at the center of a space designed by Barragán to be the neighborhood's main entrance.
