About Change this

Fernando Romero is a Mexican architect, son-in-law of Mexican billionaire, Carlos Slim. He is the grandson of Alejandro Romero Lesbros, who was a pioneer in the development of several boroughs and recreation districts in Mexico City from 1920s to 1940s. His grandfather Raúl Romero Erazo and father Raúl Romero Zenizo continued the family business. He studied architecture at Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City. After graduation in 1995 Romero joined the office of Rem Koolhaas. In 1999 was the project leader who won the entry for Casa da Música in Porto. In 2012 was a visiting professor at Columbia University in New York.

Founding FR-EE

Romero founded FR-EE in Mexico City in 2000. The work of FR-EE is rooted in research and studies of project context/site, rather than subscribing to an explicit ideology and signature style. FR-EE's projects embrace diversity and the idea that design should find sustainable solutions which ensure economic viability and social/environmental integrity. FR-EE's work comprises a variety of scales, programs and morphologies located all over the world. In 2010 FR-EE formed a separate office in New York City to serve a growing number of cultural, religious, and commercial projects across the United States. FR-EE is involved in a wide range of educational and cultural activities. Regeneration, a project restoring selected pieces of modern Mexican architecture, preserves culture and creates awareness about the role of architecture and design in Mexico.

The New Airport in Mexico City

The New Airport was designed in collaboration between FR-EE and Foster + Partners and promises to be one of the largest airports in the world and the largest in the Americas, with an area of 743,000 square meters. The terminal will use very little power, and so it will become the most sustainable airport in the world. It will have short spaces throughout the halls; therefore, no internal trains or subway tunnels will be used. It will have six lanes, and will be able to mobilize up to 120 million passengers per year.
