Frida Escobedo

Frida Escobedo established her eponymous studio in Mexico City in 2006. The studio’s reputation, initially built on the strength of a series of competition-winning projects in her native country—including the renovation of the Hotel Boca Chica (2008), the El Eco Pavilion (2010), and the expansion of La Tallera Siquieros in Cuernavaca (2012)—has achieved global scope since 2018, when she received the prestigious appointment to design the annual Serpentine Pavilion in London’s Kensington Gardens, becoming the youngest architect to date to undertake the project. Her practice defies the traditional boundaries of the discipline, operating at a wide array of scales and mediums, from buildings and experimental preservation projects to temporary installations and public sculpture, limited edition objects, publications, and exhibition design.

Organized by the MS Advanced Architectural Design (MSAAD) Program at Columbia GSAPP as part of the Arguments lecture series.
