Abstract:

Fernando Romero (*1971 in Mexico City) worked from 1997 to 2000 at the offices of Rem Koolhaas in Rotterdam; in 2000 he started his own office, known as Laboratory of Architecture (LAR). LAR has a vast collection of designs and buildings that vary from orthogonal to fluid, dynamic, and organic. This publication contains selected projects that provide an overview of Romero's visions, designs, and buildings, documenting the office's accomplishments during its first ten years. These are the result of its experimentation with new materials, implemented with both traditional and innovative building methods, and its rethinking of currentdiscourse in the interest of creating unprecedented spaces.
