Laboratory of Architecture/Fernando Romero
The ambitious work of young Mexican architect Fernando Romero and his practice, LAR (Laboratory of Architecture), is explored in this exhibition of 20 key projects. Illuminated models are complemented by large photographs of Mexico City that depict the context for much of Romero’s work. Informed by his studies of Mexico City and the U.S./Mexican border, Romero responds to the challenges and hopes of Mexico with new building forms, imaginative structures, and concepts for civic space. Romero is also currently working on projects in the United States, Europe, and China.
