The Mexican architecture firm, Legorreta + Legorreta, celebrated its first five decades with a book that brought together its most emblematic projects in which, its influence by Mexican roots and its inclusion towards new technologies are examined.

This volume is not a specialist book for architects, but instead it is intended for a wider audience, it aims to reflect the firm's philosophy. It complied by various interviews, where Víctor and the other partners present their outlooks, anecdotes and perspective of working in Mexico and in other countries. The voices of this firm also gave a collection of images from various international photographers; texts written by Ana Terán, an introduction by Felipe Leal, which introduces the reader to overall ideological stance of the architectural firm.
