An American expat searches vibrant cities and quiet pueblos for the essence of authentic Mexican style

With Mexican, author Newell Turner begins to do for Mexican design what legendary culinary pioneer Diana Kennedy did for Mexican food. Turner searches the country for design and cultural details that are the essence of Mexican style. Taking readers behind the walls, gates, and doors of private Mexico, we are introduced to an intriguing world of interior design and architecture from Spanish colonial and baroque to surrealism, 1970s brutalism, and contemporary work. His story is in the spirit of memoirs like Driving Over Lemons, in which a traveler discovers another country—and himself along the way. This breathtaking album of photography shows how every room, courtyard, loggia—and even a chair, arrangement of flowers, and textiles for clothing—are part of a rich design heritage. Turner spent his magazine career chronicling American style and now his fascination has turned to Mexico. We are invited to join him as he explores the homes of Mexicans and other expats who share his passion for authentic Mexico, both past and present, inspired by the country’s complex history and stunning landscapes.

BY JOHN IKE AND MITCHELL OWENS; PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY BY RICHARD POWERS Nine stunningly singular projects by renowned architect John Ike

A signature shingled house in a New York suburb, a renovated mid–century modern house in San Diego, a glass–and–brick house near Seattle, a beach house on the Atlantic coast, a reimagined historic building in Brooklin, Maine—the projects featured in this book vary widely in style, location, and materials, but all share a common sensibility. For John Ike, a founding partner of the award–winning firm Ike Kligerman Barkley, they are all vehicles illustrating the myriad ways architecture is created. His involvement in them ranges from mentor to principal architect and designer, but all are collaborations, and in each chapter he focuses attention on a person who was particularly instrumental in realizing the project, whether the interior designer, the landscape architect, the contractor, a craftsperson, or the client. With an authoritative text by seasoned architecture and design writer Mitchell Owens and specially commissioned photography, John Ike: 9 Houses/9 Stories explores and celebrates the inextricable bond between the architect and those who implement his vision, a give–and–take that results in singularly designed residences.

Before co–founding Ike Kligerman Barkley, John Ike worked for Robert A.M. Stern, under whom he had studied for his master of architecture degree at the Graduate School of Architecture at Columbia University. His previous books include Ike Kligerman Barkley: Houses and The New Shingled House: Ike Kligerman Barkley. He divides his time between California and New Jersey. Mitchell Owens is the American editor of the World of Interiors and a host of @indegaretravel. He was formerly decorative arts editor at Architectural Digest. He lives in New York. Architecture and interiors photographer Richard Powers has photographed more than 20 books and his work appears regularly in the US and European editions of Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, World of Interiors, Vogue, and the Wall Street Journal. He lives in the south of France. GREAT VARIETY: The projects range in style from traditional to ultra modern and in location from Brooklin, Maine; Long Island Sound; the Hamptons; and the Jersey shore to Seattle, Napa Valley, Carmel, Lake Tahoe, and San Diego.

AWARD–WINNING FIRM: John Ike’s firm, Ike Kligerman Barkley, has received numerous prestigious awards, including the AIA New York Chapter Award, the DDB Stars of Design Award, the ICAA Julia Morgan Award, and the ICAA Stanford White Award, and has been selected for the AD100 list since 1995.
