Frida Escobedo

Architect (1979)

Frida Escobedo is an architect and designer based in Mexico City. Her work focuses largely on the reactivation of urban spaces that are considered to be residual or forgotten, through projects that range from housing and community centers, to hotels, galleries, and public art installations. Frida Escobedo is a graduate of the Ibero-American University of America and recently obtained a Masters in Art, Design and the public domain at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. She founded the Perro Rojo studio in 2003 with Alejandro Alarcónm and has been working as an independent architect since 2006. She was awarded a young creator’s study grant in 2005 in Mexico, and won the Forum young architect prize awarded by the Architectural League of New York in 2008. She has also taught at the Ibero-American University of Mexico, at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, and Harvard Graduate School of Design. Her projects seek to highlight both social occasions through spontaneous appropriations, and relationships between the users of a particular space. She represented Mexico at the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale in 2014, the same year that her work was presented at the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts at San Francisco, in 2017 at the Biennale d'Architecture d'Orléans. She was selected in 2018 to design the 18th Serpentine Summer Pavilion in London. She is the recipient of the 2016 Architectural Review Emerging Architecture Award, the 2017 Architectural League Emerging Voices Award.
