Agustin Hernandez Navarro is a Mexican sculptor and architect. Navarro was born in Mexico City, the son of politician Lamberto Hernandez and Amalia Navarro; he is the brother of choreographer Amalia Hernandez, architect Lamberto Hernandez, Delfina Hernandez and Gabriela Hernandez. 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.
