Our current invited architect at LIGA, Frida Escobedo, has been selected as one of three candidates for the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Initiative of Architecture 2012-1013. The two other selected architects are Camilo Restrepo from Colombia and Yang Zhao from China. Following a worldwide search for the most outstanding young talents in architecture, Rolex has announced the finalists for a year-long mentorship with renowned Japanese architect Kazuyo Sejima. Chosen by an international panel of experts, the three architecture finalists will be interviewed by Sejima, who will select one of them as her protégé for a year of creative collaboration. The protégé will be announced in November. Congratulations, Frida!
