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.

cur­rent projects, 2018

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.
