About The Team

Individual commitment to a group effort – that’s what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.


L. Benjamín Romano is an architect from the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City with studies in Israel on “Precast elements”.

Mr. Romano finished his first construction project in 1978, while at the same time completing his bachelor’s degree in Architecture and Urbanism. The project comprised of two manufacturing plants for the apparel industry with an area of 42,000 m2, including areas for  fabrics, textile finishing, cutting 

and sewing in the city of Hidalgo, México.

Architect Romano is the founder of the firm LBR&A Arquitectos that has a broad professional history of over 40 years. The firm has developed projects highlighted by their contemporary design, high-tech and the flexibility in spaces, with a clear structural-space understanding and enhancing the Mexican technique on the use of solid materials.
