Luis Ramiro Barragan Morfin (1802-1988) was a Mexican architect whose early education was as an engineer, but as he traveled to Spain and France, he became aware of Ferdinand Bac, Le Corbuiser and Jose Clemente Orozco which led him into the practice of architecture in Guadalajara from 1926 to 1936 before his move to Mexico City ultimately leading to the planning of the residential development Jardines del Pedegal, Mexico City. He was honored with a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in 1975 and became the second winner of the Pritzger Architectural Prize.
