The Modern Masters
Pioneers of a New Mexican landscape
Michael Van Beuren
Embodying the heart of Luteca’s design philosophy, the Mexican Modernist architect Michael Van Beuren bridged the gap between innovative design and the use of local Mexican craftsmen.
Steadfast in the belief that contemporary Mexican design should be rooted in the country’s rich artisanal history, Clara Porset devoted her life to championing a mutually enriching vision of modernity and tradition.
Pedro Ramírez Vázquez
Latin American architect Pedro Ramirez Vázquez was responsible for many of Mexico’s Modernist projects, including the National Musuem of Anthropoogy and the Basilica de Guadalupe.
The Luteca Story
Inspired by the rich architectural heritage of Mexico and Latin America, Luteca was founded in New York in 2015 by Amanda and Sebastian Réant. Combining a direct partnership with the families and foundations that hold the legacies to some of the most important Twentieth century Mexican design masters, with that of the latest contemporary talents influenced by Mexico’s rich architectural history, Luteca produces incomparable designs with unparalleled legacy.
