A representative of Mexico’s dynamic contemporary architecture scene, Frida Escobedo set up her practice in Mexico City in 2006 and has been going from strength to strength ever since.
casa Negra, 2004
Standing on four columns, this live/ work space in the outskirts of Mexico City was Escobedo’s first ground-up, new-build project (designed with her then-partner Alejandro Alarcón).
Hotel boca chica, 2010
The renovation of a 1950s hotel in Acapulco, Hotel Boca Chica (W*137) offered the opportunity for Escobedo to experiment with interventions to an existing structure.
La Tallera, 2012
This high-profile project, which comprises a museum, atelier and artist’s residence, placed Escobedo firmly on the global architecture map.
civic stage, 2013
Stage design for Lisbon’s 2013 Architecture Triennale marked her first European project.
aesop installation, 2014
An installation at a pop-up Aesop store in New York, featuring shifting layers of sand, was the first of many retail designs by Escobedo for the Australian beauty brand.
serpentine pavilion, 2018
With her time-and-space-inspired design, Escobedo joined a prestigious list of architects to have completed the annual London commission.

Due to be completed before the end of the year are: a hotel in Puebla for Grupo Habita; a housing project and a private residence in Mexico City; an Aesop store in New York’s Park Slope; and a house for the Re_construir México initiative.
