Award-winning Mexican architect Fernando Romero is scheduled to speak Wednesday evening, Jan. 16, 2013, at NewSchool of Architecture and Design on the topic of “You are the Context” as part of the San Diego school's lecture series that attracts inspiring and innovative designers and architects from around the United States and the world. The event is free and open to the public.

Mexican architect Fernando Romero has received numerous awards and recognitions for his work. He has been named to Fast Company’s Co.Design “Designers Shaping the Future” 2012, and has been awarded the Five Stars for Public Services Development through the International Property Awards – Americas 2012. Other awards include the Spark Awards 2012, Red Dot Award: Best of the Best 2006 and the Young Architects Award (Mexican Society of Architects) in 2009. One recent example of his work is the Soumaya Museum in Mexico City that is described by CNN’s Great Buildings series as “jaw-dropping.”

Romero works between his studio (FR-EE) in New York and his native Mexico City. Over the last ten years he has designed and built more than one million square feet, collaborating with over 500 architects on more than 100 projects. As the founder of Archivo Diseño y Arquitectura, Romero aims to enrich the awareness of design and architecture in Mexico. The lecture topic coincides with the full release in 2013 of a book by the same name by Fernando Romero that explores how the global reach of projects increases through digital communication, and how that results in a reconsideration of the definition of context as it pertains to architecture.
