Go visit that museum on a sunny day for a wonderful kick of color in the yellow, yellow, YELLOW entry tower and then the deeply BLUE courtyard with its grand old tree. Legorreta continued the design approach of his mentor Luis Barragan, a blend of Modernism and Mexican tradition noted for clean lines, sculptural volumes, and poetic use of sun and shade and, above all, color.
This was not default color either, not add-on color. I love this quote by Legorreta:
"Instead of saying I will make a wall and paint it red, I [say] I will make something red and it will be a wall."
