Bilbao was born and raised in Mexico City and studied at the city’s Universidad Iberoamericana Ciudad de México (IBERO) before setting up her studio, Tatiana Bilbao Estudio, in the city in 2004. Fernanda Canales is an award-winning architect, curator, teacher and writer, whose work addresses collaboration and place-making. Canales’ influences include a century-old text by Paulette Bernège, If Women Made Houses, which challenges the relationship between architecture and inhabitants, and issues of labour and gender inequality. Based in Mexico City, Frida Escobedo is principal and founder of an architecture and design studio whose work impacts internationally, beyond built projects, through teaching and commissions for biennales. In early 2021, Montiel’s Court project received an Honorable Mention in the Fassa Bartolo International Prize for Sustainable Architecture. The bespoke nature of Ramirez’s work is also achieved through what she describes as a ‘client-centric’ approach, which places importance on deep involvement of the building’s end user from start to finish.
