- Tatiana Bilbao
BiographyIn 2007 Architecture Record included Tatiana Bilbao among the 10 best emerging new studios and awarded her the Design Vanguard award.
Tatiana Bilbao has stood out in recent years as one of the most interesting architects to come out of Mexico, not only for the expressiveness of her architecture, but for her promotion of the discipline as a tool for improving society and the environment.
Born in Mexico City in 1972, Bilbao’s career took off when her graduate thesis was named best thesis of the year. In 1998 she became consultant for Urban Projects and Urban Residential Construction of the Mexico City Development Department. In 2004 she achieved two important milestones: the founding of her own studio, Tatiana Bilbao S.C., and, in partnership with Derek Dellekamp, Arturo Ortiz and Michel Rojkind, the establishment of an urban research centre concerned with the defence and control of public space in the Mexican capital.
Her studio worked on projects in various parts of the world, and Tatiana Bilbao also pursued an academic career: in 2005 she began teaching design at the Universidad Iberoamericana, and in 2008 she was visiting professor at Andres Bello University in Santiago de Chile.
In 2010 Bilbao and two partners, David Vaner, an architect and engineer with experience working on the ETH research team in Basel, and Catia Bilbao, an analyst, the group’s financial director. Prestigious acknowledgements include her 2009 nomination as Emerging Voice by the Architecture League of New York and the Centre Pompidou’s 2010 addition of three of her projects to its permanent architecture collection.
