Mexican architect Frida Escobedo is no stranger to stimulating environments. Fresh from earning a degree in architecture and urbanism from the Universidad Iberoamericana in 2003, she co-founded her first studio, Perro Rojo, at age 24. Upon going solo in 2006, Frida quickly began stacking up awards and recognition for her work, and it wasn’t long before she found herself flying back and forth and designing in both the US and Mexico.

While attending the Harvard Graduate School of Design, she received her first public commission to build La Tallera Siqueiros cultural center in Cuernavaca, Mexico, which has become one of her best-known creations. Whether it’s a hotel, gallery or a public space, Frida’s work carries energy—a bold blend between modernism and Mexican tradition—without adhering to one specific style. She discusses the changing scenery of Mexico City and how its vibrant streets have influenced her career.
