2019 Architecture & the City Festival | SF

The 16th annual month-long celebration features behind the scenes and walking tours, films, exhibitions, lectures and more that address varying aspects of the design and planning process.

This years festival theme, “We the City”, aims to explore how cultural diversity and connectivity inspire and inform the built environment. From the Dogpatch to the Outer Sunset — San Francisco is a unique, diverse, and multi-generational mosaic.

Frida Escobedo will be discussing her works and experiences in architecture. Escobedo was born in Mexico City in 1979. She is an Architect and Urban Planner. She received her undergraduate education at the Universidad Iberoamericana de la ciudad de México and holds a Masters of Art, Design, and Public Domain from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard. Escobedo founded her Mexico City firm in 2006, after acting as co-director at perro rojo from 2003-2006.

Free, but an RSVP is required.

She describes the work of the office as focusing on “the residual and the forgotten: from decadent suburbs that are being subdivided, to rundown tourist spots, to unused roofs and basements” focusing on identifying “forces that change the configuration of cities…central and powerful or marginal, formal or informal.” In 2012, she completed a remodel of La Tallera Siqueiros en Cuernavaca, Morelos. She has been named one of the leading Architects of her generation and a member of the “Future 50” by Icon Magazine.
