Palenque: The Palace & the Temple of the Inscriptions [January 1, 2004]

The Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta writes: "The integration of nature, color, and climate is perfectly achieved in Palenque. It is there, upon the ancient stones, that I realize how the true values of life -- peace, love, humanity, and spirituality -- blend perfectly with nature, color, sky, and how the role of the architect is truly one of enhancing the earth."
