Recent Reviews by Caspar Dechmann


Luis Barragán House and Studio Caspar Dechmann

I visited this house during my one day in Mexico City flying home from Yucatán. The required reservation over the website did not work, therefore I just went there and was lucky to get a spot in a tour if though in Spanish.

The house is interesting: very clear but still full of asymmetries and surprises. Very modern but full of crosses as architectural elements and in old paintings. Very bright and open, but still protected from the outside world by high walls.

Campeche Caspar Dechmann

The walls of Campeche are nice but not complete and Not all original. I cannot imagine that there were not several similar or even more impressive even in the new world. For European standards they are modest. I either don't know enough to say if the colourful houses of the old city are unique and if there OUV is justified. However, to wander through the streets is a delight. Many houses are nicely renovated and the streets are full of shops, bars, restaurants and galleries.

L'oeuvre architecturale d'Henry van de Velde (T) Caspar Dechmann

I am always taken by the buildings by Henry van der Velde: I visited several of them by chance: the magnificent museum Kröller-Möller, the buildings in Weimar and Gent. First it is very impressive the wide range from art nouveaux like some buildings in Brussels to the modern buildings like the Kröller-Möller and the Gent University. But while the early works are much clearer, more sculpted then the houses by some of his friends like Horta, the later buildings still seem more "alive", warmer, nicer to live in then the works by Corbusier and Gropius.

The Ahuehuete Tree of Santa Maria del Tule (T) Caspar Dechmann


Zone de monuments de Puebla et Cholula (T) Caspar Dechmann

I visited this site during my trip to Mexico in 2009 and found it fascinating: Just the largest pyramid in the world is an impressiv fact. But it is hidden under a large hill, crowned with a important pilgrimage church, supposedly destroyed several times by lightning as vengeance of the old, previously revered god. It is somehow a mystery to me why not more of the pyramid is excavated since it could be as important as Teotihuacan.
