Ricardo Legorreta Black talk on eClassroom

Zocalo Residential Compound

Ricardo Legorreta’s insightful Black talk was recorded by eClassroom in partnership with AAA. So for all those who missed out, the erudite Mr Legorreta is available at the touch of a mouse.

In his Black talk, Ricardo Legorreta revealed his deep appreciation of traditional Mexican architectural elements and culture. He also showed through his work his thoroughly modern sense of design reflecting the early training with Mexican master Luis Barragan.

Underlying this he had a strong and emotive message about the role of architecture in today’s world – that message alone makes this recording more than worthwhile for anyone intereted in expanding their knowledge and understanding of architecture.

This is the first partnership between AAA and eClassroom and if successful will become a model for coverage of future Black talks. AAA members will recieve a $25 cash back off the eClassroom purchase price if they indicate their membership number when ordering online at
