Cuadra San Cristobal, located in Mexico, was designed by landscape and minimalist architect Luis Barragan for his fellow rider friend Egerstom in the year 1966.

The entire area of the structure is classified into different zones based on the flooring type and zoned out as the water body, the sand (main arena), the lawn, and the abandoned land used for the training of horses. The majority of the site area has been provided with different activities for the horses.
The main feature of the structure is the water body and the pink wall. The silence of the huge arena is enhanced by the sound of the fountain – a thick stream of water spouted in an arch drawing inspiration from the Mexican ranches. The pink wall emphasizes the division between the residential area and the stable area as the public and private spaces. The vegetation beyond the pink wall subtle outs the dramatic effect by giving it a more earthy look. The pink wall gives the vision of the landscape beyond it.

The overall colors create a dramatic effect. The colors, bold and intentional, allowing the sun to cast different stories each hour of the day on the wide arenas.
