Summary
"From Aztec to High Tech explores the architectural future of interdependent neighbors who share a history, an economy, and a landscape. After reviewing three key periods in Mexico's three thousand-year-old architectural past - indigenous, Spanish colonial, and modern - urban planning scholar Lawrence A. Herzog focuses on the border territories of northern Mexico and the southwestern United States, particularly in California." "Through eighty black-and-white photographs and interviews with architects from both sides of the border, this engaging book provides a compelling picture of how traditional Mexican architecture has intersected with the postindustrial, high-tech urban style of the United States - a mix that offers an alternative to the homogenization of architecture north of the international border."--BOOK JACKET
