|Description||Born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1971. Lives and works there.|
In 2000, Romero set up his own architectural firm LCM (Laboratorio de la Ciudad de Mexico) in Mexico City, and in 2006, he founded LAR (Laboratory of Architecture) based in Los Angeles. He has developed wide-ranging projects including cultural and commercial facilities and housing, pursuing new forms and structures as shown in "Ixtapa House" in which all the ceilings and walls are joined on a curved surface.
"Wrapping" is playground equipment for children installed on the grass around the Museum on the side of Honda Street. You can enter the inside of the structure made of the assembled stainlesssteel pipes, which are covered with steel mesh. Many protuberances stick out in different directions, and each end of them is used for a window or an entrance. Entering one of the three entrances touching the ground, a child can climb up through the inside to get out from another entrance. The usage of mesh gives the work permeability and a light impression.
