Eduardo Gorozpe. A001 Taller de Arquitectura

Eduardo Gorozpe Fernández (CDMX, June 21, 1978) is the founder and director of the office A-001 Taller de Arquitectura. He has more than 20 years of professional work in developing public, private and institutional projects. Some of his most representative projects such as Terraza Timberland was a finalist in the Obras Award (2018); and his public utility skyscraper Barrio Capital was celebrated in various publications as an exercise in urban acupuncture (2012).

Eduardo Gorozpe Fernández has a "Master's degree in the City" of CENTER (CDMX, 2017) with an investigation that developed a methodology for the algorithmic analysis of public space. He received the degree of Bachelor of Architecture with Honorable Mention from the Universidad Anáhuac del Norte (CDMX, 2002), for his thesis El Templo, an Ecumenical Center registered in the heart of the Desierto de Los Leones that focused on heritage restoration processes.

His office A-001 Taller de Arquitectura is committed to the innovation and design that makes the city. It is a leader in the production of socially responsible commercial spaces. In 2018, it was a finalist for Pabellón Mextrópoli, and a finalist, in 2017, for Pabellón HUB-Week (Boston Society of Architects, MIT, Harvard University). In 2012, A-001 Taller de Arquitectura + BNKR Arquitectura won the proposal of the National Museum of Afghanistan, in Kabul (1/100); and his Casa del Viento project was Work of the Month from Obras Magazine (CDMX: Grupo Editorial Expansión). In 2011, Gorozpe was distinguished as Emerging Talent of the creative branch in My Trend Week (CDMX). In 2019, it won the public tender for the remodeling of the food service areas at the Chapultepec Zoo, the Aragón Zoo, and the Coyotes-Xochimilco Zoo (CDMX, 2019). It is currently in the process of starting work on the Templo Mayor Hotel and the Rubén Darío Linear Park.

Eduardo Gorozpe Fernández has developed with his team new methodologies for analyzing the use and occupation of public space. His built projects are characterized by a distinctive narrative of place. Due to his attention to interdisciplinary research on space, he has been invited to give more than 40 workshops and conferences at different universities in Mexico. After the earthquake of 19S 2017, his office supported PRO-BONO with hundreds of real estate diagnoses in the Roma-Juárez strip, CDMX; and built a single-family rural house in Hueyapan, Morelos.
