AD Interviews: Fernando Romero / FR-EE

Fernando Romero is part of the new generation of young Mexican architects that have reshaped the profession in a country with a longstanding tradition.

Fernando studied at the Universidad Iberoamericana, and shortly after graduating went to Europe, ending up working at OMA where he became a project leader of the Porto House of Music (1996-1999). In 2000, he went back to Mexico where he established his own firm FR-EE which as of today has built more than ten million square feet, with offices in New York and Mexico City, and many on-going projects.

The practice has a strong focus on research, and the process of each building is the result of an integrated workflow with a multidisciplinary team. These processes are documented on a series of publications by the firm, including You Are the Context , launched at the Guggenheim a few months ago.

Some of his recent works include the G20 International Convention Center, the iconic Soumaya Museum and the Jumex Tower.

In this interview, Fernando shares with us his views on architecture, the role of the architect, and how he has setup this particular type of practice.
