The Team

Taller Frida Escobedo

Architectural Design

Frida established her eponymous studio in Mexico City in 2006. Her practice defies the traditional boundaries of the discipline, operating at a wide array of scales and mediums, from buildings and experimental preservation projects to temporary installations and public sculpture, limited edition objects, publications, and exhibition design. Most recently, she was appointed as the architect to design the new Modern & Contemporary Wing for The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, becoming the youngest and first woman to design a building for the institution.

Workstead is a multidisciplinary studio celebrated by the AD100 as a global leader in design, for the third consecutive year. Through its Brooklyn-based Buildings & Interiors studio, overseen by principal Ryan Mahoney, Workstead makes residential and hospitality spaces that are modern in function, respectful of history, and welcoming to all comers. From their office, more than 15 professionals create one-of-a-kind buildings and interiors that are comprehensive in vision and exacting in detail. In small- and large-scale work alike, Workstead employs a disciplined design process that melds precedent, modern form, and honest construction. Representing both familiarity and reinvention, our work resonates with individual clients and commercial audiences over years of use. Workstead's efforts reflect its values of belonging, beauty, and necessity.
