Beautiful monograph about the work of Abraham Zabludovsky (1924-2003), a Polish-Mexican architect. Zabludovsky was born in Bialystok, Poland and later moved to Mexico where he graduated from Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico in 1949. Early in his career, he designed many projects in Mexico City. Beginning in 1968, Zabludovsky collaborated with architect Teodoro Gonzalez de Leon. Both Zabludovsky's and Gonzalez de Leon's styles feature geometric, linear designs. This book includes essays by different authors and highlights different types of Zabludovsky's projects including residences, apartment buildings, towers, and housing complexes.
