Guatemala's National Theater is really a master piece, design by the great Maestro Efrain Recinos (1928-2011+). An architectural piece inspired by the Mayan culture but built and expressed in its unique design.

The National Theater of the Cultural Center is inspired by what was the Mayan culture. Without falling into the copismo, it is a true integration of landscape and iconology Mayanist within contemporary architecture. In other words, these "functional sculptures" are an example of true originality. Thus it could be said that nowhere is the influence of Greek culture repetitive, which is a good example of local magnificence the rest of the American continent and in the world, must be assumed to be universal local level.
