US Embassy, Mexico City

au 2017—17

A return to a conscious effort to design and construct embassies that provide security, but pay careful attention to architectural quality and image was made official through the Embassy Design and Security Act and the Federal Building Design Excellence Program. At its core, an embassy is a diplomatic institution; fostering good will is central to its mission. This project asks a consideration of the design of an embassy for our close neighbor, Mexico, recognizing that architecture itself is a political art, but also that embassies represent the entirety of a country for longer than an American political cycle.
