CPDA Arquitectos is a Mexico City based architecture studio, founded in 2016 by Juan Pablo Cepeda Restrepo (1982). He receives the Gold Medal in the First Mexico City Architecture Biennale.
Our belief that in order to face today's challenges, we must break with pre-established lacking and inoperative design models; and propose physical solutions that, in addition to innovation in their design, achieve an integration with its context: urban, social and cultural, of the site to be developed.
Regardless of the scale or scope, we provide each project with the same high level of rigor and care. We respect the tradition and legacy of good Mexican architecture, in order to achieve this goal, we respectfully look back at the past not leaving by side the historical process and transformations of the context but creating an aesthetic reinterpretation of the elements that identify the site with its present and its future.
Firm recognition includes two medals from the Academy of Mexican Architecture, two honorable mentions from the Young Mexican Architects Biennale, Nominated for the RIBA International Prize (2017), Highly Commented, World Architecture Festival in the small-scale housing (2018), Winner for The International Architecture Awards in residential multiunit (2019) and more.
