Though lot of the modernist architecture in that neighborhood has been demolished and replaced with more recent structures, there are some surviving examples. I think Luis Barragán's
Casa Prieto-López (now called Casa Pedregal)
is probably the best known since it was recently restored and is open to the public if you arrange a visit in advance. Here's a

hidden from view behind walls, gates, and tall hedges
