Frida Escobedo is a graduate of the Ibero-American University of America and recently obtained a Masters in Art, Design and the public domain at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. She founded the Perro Rojo studio in 2003 with Alejandro Alarcónm and has been working as an independent architect since 2006. She was awarded a young creator’s study grant in 2005 in Mexico, and won the Forum young architect prize awarded by the Architectural League of New York in 2008. She has also taught at the Ibero-American University of Mexico.
Her projects seek to highlight both social occasions through spontaneous appropriations, and relationships between the users of a particular space. In 2012, she represented Mexico at the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale in 2014, the same year that her work was presented at the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts at San Francisco.
