MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican architect Pedro Ramirez Vazquez has died at the age of 94.
Ramirez Vazquez designed some of Mexico's biggest landmark modernist structures, including the new Basilica of Guadalupe, the Anthropology Museum and the Azteca Stadium, all in Mexico City.
Mexico's National Arts Council said Ramirez Vazquez died late Tuesday of pneumonia. He is survived by four children. No burial plans have been announced.
The sweeping, curvy lines of the basilica and the cantilevered central pavilion of the anthropology museum became hallmarks of Mexico's modernist architectural boom, led by figures like Luis Barragan from the 1940s to the 70s. He also designed a low-cost, pre-fab rural school.
While less well-known than Barragan, architects such as Ramirez Vazquez and Mario Pani designed the biggest projects of the era.
