ARDITTI+RDT/architects is a talented architectural design research team that first garnered national attention when its work was featured in the book Young Mexican Architects. The firm first attained international recognition in the exhibition “New Mexican Architecture” in Madrid, Spain, on the occasion of the first Ibero-American biennial in 1998. Its work belongs to an emerging young expression of modern architecture in Mexico, their primary place of practice, and recent commissions abroad have expanded its scope and reach. Arturo and Jorge Arditti head the firm.
During his forty years of practice, founder Mauricio’s approach to the design and construction of residences was tailored to a specific clientele with an eye towards professional excellence. He was born in Mexico City in 1938, graduated with honors from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, and was a fellow of the Universidad Anahuac’s honorary board of consultant members. In 1984 he and his son Arturo joined forces, and when his son Jorge joined the practice in 1990, they decided to form ARDITTI+RDT/architects, a firm devoted exclusively to architectural design. Their experience includes a wide variety of project types—residential, commercial, and religious—and has tackled design solutions for corporate, institutional and tourist enterprises from architectural planning to interior design, according to the needs of each client.
