Biography

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.

Born to 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 gave lectures.
