Michel Rojkind was born in Mexico City where he studied architecture and urban planning at the Universidad Iberoamericana. After working on his own for several years, he teamed up with Isaac Broid and Miquel Adria to establish Adria+Broid+Rojkind (1998-2002). The idea of exploring new challenges that address contemporary society, to design compelling experiences that go beyond mere functionality, and to connect at a deeper level with the intricacies of each project, he established an independent firm Rojkind arquitectos (2002) recognized by Architectural Record in 2005 as one of the best ten “Design Vanguard” firms. Rojkind arquitectos seeks new directions in architectural practice - evoking common identities through the exploration of uncharted geometries that address questions of space, function, technology, materials, structure, and construction methods related directly to geography, climate, and local urban experiences.
With Arturo Ortiz, Derek Dellekamp, and Tatiana Bilbao, Michel Rojkind co-founded MXDF Urban Research Center (2004), a non-profit organization. The main object of MXDF is to intervene in specific areas of the urban development, modifying the production of urban space in Mexico. Recently Michel has been short-listed to participate in several large scale international projects, including Canada, Kuwait, and Spain.
