This is the first English book on the work of architect Carlos Herrera, who has designed around the world but is best known for pieces in Mexico and Central America.
By Carlos Herrera | Rizzoli; $75
Showcasing projects from beach houses to museums, this book (beautifully photographed by Allan Fis) captures Herrera’s knack for creating light-filled spaces with modern lines that integrate seamlessly into nature. This volume, handsome enough for coffee table display, is also chock full of ideas that can both help you dream your way to a more beautiful home, and give you ideas that you can incorporate on a more limited scale. After all, light is free 12 or so hours a day, and Herrera brilliantly illuminates (yes, we went there) how best to use it.
