For Sordo Madaleno, Mexico is one of the few countries with its own architectural heritage, unlike other places of great influence such as Paris, New York and London, whose global universal architecture often has no expression of its regional culture. 'We have a longstanding tradition behind us in Mexico. We must never lose this tradition; we always have that part of Mexican architecture under our skin,' says Madaleno, referring to his primary influences and mentors - his father Juan Sordo Madaleno and the architect Luis Barragan. A fusion of traditional Mexican architecture with contemporary global styles have made Javier Sordo Madaleno a worthy representative of modern Mexican architecture around the world.
