Emerging Practices in Mexican Architecture

Daniel Lopez received his degree from La Salle University and established his own firm in 1994. His work has included numerous institutional buildings for the Harp Helu Foundation in Oaxaca and a recent series of single family houses. His design focus is on the reinterpretation of modern architectural patterns in Oaxaca and the landscape.
