Architects' House Museums

From Luis Barragán's Mexico City residence to the Alvar Aalto House in Helsinki, we share ten architects' dwellings that are now museums.
Casa Luis Barragan

General Francisco Ramírez 12-14

Colonia Ampliación Daniel Garza México, D.F. 11840

Luis Barragan built his house in 1948 and lived there until his passing in 1988. It's currently a UNESCO World Heritage site, the only personal property in Latin America that has achieved such a distinction. Considered a masterpiece in the development of the modern movement, the house is faithfully preserved just as Barragan lived there. It's among the most-visited works of modern architecture in Mexico City. Photo by: Alejandro Chavetta
