Praxis - Agustín HernándezRegular price$34 USD Sale price
‘It was only after the Mexican War of Independence that the Indian fountain sprang forth. Only after the Spanish crown was expelled did the zeitgeist of Mexican art look to its ancient past with overdue awe. Ever since, painters, writers, and architects have drawn inspiration from this bloodline. Mexican modernism and muralism both took the pre-Hispanic undercurrent and blended it with the sensibility of their time, in the pursuit of national identity. From a vein out of this river emerged Agustín Hernández’. —Tezontle Studio & Luis Orozco Madero.
Praxis, Agustín Hernández is the fourth book in a series devoted to some of our favourite architects, the houses they build, and the stories behind them.
