Michel Rojkind is not yet 40 (was born on December 18, 1969 in Mexico City), and he’s only been designing buildings for a dozen years. (He was a rock ‘n’ roll drummer for a decade before - not your typical architecture career path). But he’s fast gaining an international reputation that places him in very heady competition. Since 2002 Rojkind has had his own Mexico City shop, rojkind arquitectos, which was recognized in 2005 by Architectural Record as one of the world’s 10 best “design vanguard” firms. He’s built about 15 projects to date in Mexico, has multiple projects underway worldwide, and has been short-listed in competitions in Canada and Spain.

Most impressively, Rojkind’s was one of just five architectural firms worldwide invited to submit designs for an enormous cultural center in the Middle East. “It’s a very big deal,” he acknowledges. “I get invited to lots of competitions, but this one was different because of the large scale and few entries. The other four are these monster architectural firms, so just to be included in that circle with the big guys is such an honor.”
