MONTERREY, Mexico—Perkins and Will, one of North America’s most successful research-driven architecture and design firms, has opened a studio in Monterrey—the third-largest city in Mexico and a growing economic hub for the country’s commercial, industrial, educational, and transportation sectors.
The studio—a short flight away from Mexico City, the nation’s capital, and just over the border from the firm’s three Texas studios in Austin, Houston, and Dallas—is ideally situated, ensuring that clients throughout Mexico and Latin America have access to top design talent and global resources.
“Our investment in Monterrey reflects our commitment to clients in this important part of the world, and to diversifying our talent firmwide,” says Phil Harrison, CEO of Perkins and Will. “The more diverse our global teams, the more innovative our work, the better we can serve our clients and communities.”
“The most important thing for our clients to know is that, from our Monterrey studio, we will offer them the best of both worlds: a seamless blend of local and international designers, and the research, technology, and expertise of a global firm with award-winning work on nearly every continent,” says Antonio Perez Vazquez, an architect in the Perkins and Will Dallas studio who was born and raised in Mexico. Perez Vazquez relocated to Monterrey in December 2019 to help oversee the studio’s growth and operations.
