Publisher's description: Internationally recognized Mexican architect and designer Oscar Hagerman has been referred to as the architect of the people. Working with Mexico's indigenous peoples for over 50 years, his vision and design is an ingenious combination of traditional aesthetics and contemporary technology. This long-awaited survey presents Hagerman's life work in three thematic blocks: his early residential designs in Mexico City and Valle de Bravo, which incorporate rural architectural elements; projects built throughout rural communities and the Mexican states of Oaxaca, Chiapas and Puebla, including his excellent furniture designs made by noted manufacturers and artisanal furniture-production cooperatives; and lastly, Hagerman's long teaching career and recent research on rural housing, community-based involvement, do-it-yourself construction, and the use of regional materials. A unique look at a visionary architect who understands people, culture, community and the land they live on.
