|In the eighties, Legorreta Architects we began to design projects abroad some places like the United States of America and some countries in Central America, working successfully with local architects, who allowed continued contact with customers, better understanding of regulations and local codes, in addition to supporting the development of construction documents.
In the early nineties, Victor Legorreta joined the firm leading a group of young architects and along with Ricardo Legorreta they direct the design of all projects until the end of 2011.
In 2000, we renamed the office as for Legorreta + Legorreta, representing more than a name, the new organization of the office. Under this new organizational scheme we conducted projects in Europe, Asia, North America, Latin America and the Middle East.
|In Legorreta + Legorreta we have developed projects for various institutions around the world, including: Stanford, UCLA, Chicago University, ITESM, American University in Cairo and 4 buildings for the HBKU in Doha, Qatar, as well as El Papalote Children’s Museum, Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the building of the Supreme Court in Mexico City, among many others.
Presently, Victor Legorreta leads the firms as Managing and Design Director with the support of four partners, Miguel Almaraz and Carlos Vargas, Project Directors, Adriana Ciklik, Operations and Project Director and Miguel Alatriste directing the Administrative and Finance Department.
We have a long history and experience and we will continue to focus our daily work in designing a human architecture highlighting Mexican roots while exploring new design paths, while talking advantages from new technologies and responding to the needs of today’s society.
