Originally from Mexico City, Edgar brings his passion for architecture as Senior Designer for Henriquez Partners. Edgar received a Master of Architecture from the University of Toronto, and a Bachelor of Architecture from Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana.
As a second generation architect, he was immensely fortunate to grow up learning, living, and breathing architecture at his father’s studio in Mexico City. During grad-school, reading Towards an Ethical Architecture, which argued on the power of beauty and the sublime to foster social change, was an invaluable source of inspiration for Edgar’s thesis. 10 years later, he left a promising career designing skyscrapers in Asia and the Middle East for the opportunity to be part of this dream.
“As Architects, we don’t give shape to cement, bricks, or wood, but to Life itself.” – Alejandro Aravena
