Design Team Selection Announced for New U.S. Embassy in Mexico City

WASHINGTON – The Department of State’s Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations (OBO) announces the selection of Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects/Davis Brody Bond joint venture to design the New Embassy Compound (NEC) in Mexico City, Mexico.

Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects/Davis Brody Bond was selected from a very talented shortlist of six architecture/engineering (A/E) teams that advanced to the final round of presentations and interviews. Their presentation demonstrated the broad and deep understanding required to undertake such an important project. Their portfolio of work is compatible to the local culture and shows sensitivity that highlights their connection to the character of the site.

The Mexico City project is the first solicited under OBO’s Design Excellence program and will demonstrate the value of an integrated design that balances aesthetics, cost, constructability, and reliability. This holistic approach to project development and delivery seeks to utilize the best methods, technologies, and staff abilities to produce facilities that are outstanding in all respects.

The design phase is anticipated to take 20 months and will begin upon award of the design contract. Construction award is scheduled for Fiscal Year 2015.

OBO’s mission is to provide safe, secure, and functional facilities that represent the U.S. Government to the host nation and support our staff in the achievement of U.S. foreign policy objectives. These facilities should represent American values and the best in American architecture, engineering, technology, sustainability, art, culture, and construction execution.
