BBVA Bancomer Tower in Mexico City
The President of Mexico officially opens the new headquarters building designed by LegoRogers for BBVA Bancomer in Mexico City. Located on the Paseo de la Reforma, the tower marks a gateway to Chapultepec Park with sky gardens overlooking the city and the park. The architecture aims to promote a sense of community and interaction between staff. On the ground floor, the triple-height lobby sits on the corner of Paseo de la Reforma, which links the daily operations of the bank branch with executive-level commercial businesses at higher levels.

In recent years, the city of Santa Fe has undergone many changes. The number of museums and galleries has increased to such an extent that Santa Fe has become the third most important artistic center in the United States. The College of Santa Fe understood the need to create a program for the visual arts that would attract the best students and professors in the country and be recognized at a national level as a leader of the arts.

“Design is more than art for art’s sake. It grabs attention, tells a story, persuades, and inspires action. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to learn how to make design work hard. Whether your interest lies in Graphic & Web Design, Interior Design, or Advertising, at an Art Institutes school, you can explore your passion for Design surrounded by other talented, creatively driven students.”, states the Sante Fe Visual Arts Centre website.

Since its founding in 1965 by Ricardo Legorreta, Noe Castro and Carlos Vargas senior as Legorreta Architects (firm since renamed), have managed to stay true to their original goal of creating the best architecture inspired by human values. This Mexican architecture practice seek to create an architecture that meets the needs of society, while contributing to building better cities. Achieving functionality, efficiency and cost control, they design friendly and human environments, with atmospheres that convey peace, privacy and optimism.

This architect studio based in Mexico has developed projects for various institutions around the world, including Stanford, UCLA, Chicago, ITESM, the American University in Cairo and four buildings for HBKU in Qatar, as well as the Papalote Children’s Museum, the Museum of Science and History in Fort Worth, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the building of the High Court in Mexico City, among many others.

Currently, Victor Legorreta leads the firm as Managing Director and Design Director with the support of four partners: Miguel Almaraz and Carlos Vargas, Project Managers; Adriana Ciklik, Operations and Project Director and Miguel Alatriste directing the Administrative and Finance Department.

They have a long history and experience and will continue to focus their daily work in designing a human architecture highlighting Mexican roots while exploring new ways of design, using new technologies and responding to the needs of modern society.
