Welcome

Ed Giddings (1929-1993) was an extraordinary American architect whose buildings both in the United States and Mexico stand as monuments to his creative genius.

HIs inventive work was not typical of anyone by himself; however, in it one can see the traditions of Gaudi, Simon Rodia's Watts Towers, his own native Pacific Northwest , and the centuries-old pyramids and other ancient structures of Mexico. He was also an artist and his paintings reflect the imagination and bold strokes of his architectural training. Again, he did not confine himself to the ordinary.

His residences and office buildings are prominent on the coast of Southern California, but his masterpieces are the revolutionary Ocho Cascadas in Puerto Vallarta and Cascadas de Baja in Cabo San Lucas. Both are preeminent Mexican resorts.

 
     
 

 

The principal photography shown throughout this site is by Julius Shulman, considered the dean of architectural photographers.

He says: "Ed Giddings completely changed my view of what architecture was. His spaces were infinite - they enveloped and embraced the very dreams of humanity: a reaching for the very spirit of existence".
