Who is Agustín Hernández Navarro?

Agustín Hernández Navarro is a Mexican architect and sculptor.

Son of politician Lamberto Hernández and Amalia Navarro, he is the brother of choreographer Amalia Hernández, architect Lamberto Hernández, Delfina Hernández and Gabriela Hernández. He studied at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, earning his degree in 1954, where he's been giving lectures for some time. The leading exponent of "emotional" architecture, Hernandez has fused elements from Mexico's Pre-columbian past in his contemporary architecture. He has stated to normally start by designing vertical elements of a building, such as the stairs of the building/house as he feels these are of much importance. He has said his architecture unites structure, form and function, just as in organic nature.
