About the speaker:

Mauricio Rocha is one of the leaders of the contemporary generation of architects who have been instrumental in re-making Mexico City. Rocha is known for a wide range of buildings, installations and architecture-based interventions, including the San Pablo Oztotepec Market, the Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired, and the House for Abandoned Children. Through the work of his Taller de Arquitectura and his teaching at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and throughout Latin America and North America, Rocha’s concepts of form, composition and material have deeply influenced a generation of architects and urbanists. Rocha’s work establishes a deep commitment to sustainability — he explores local materials and traditional labor practices — and that his work has a profound connection to context.
