Mexican architect and sculptor recognized as the leading exponent of "emotional" architecture, he 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 or house as he feels these are of much importance. He has said his architecture unites structure, form and function, as in organic nature.
