[ Mexico City ]
Frida Escobedo is principal and founder of an architecture and design studio based in Mexico City. The projects of the studio operate within a theoretical framework that addresses time not as a historical calibration but rather as a social action. This expanded temporal reading stems from Henri Bergson’s notion of ‘social time,’ and is materialized in such conceptual works as the El Eco Pavilion (2010), Civic Stage presented at the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennale and ‘Estaciones’ presented at the 2017 Biennale d'Architecture d'Orléans. In addition to her practice, Frida Escobedo has taught at various international Schools of Architecture and Design. She designed the Serpentine Summer Pavilion of 2018.
