The President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, has officially opened a new urban landmark on the skyline of Mexico City - BBVA Bancomer’s new headquarters today. The 50-storey office tower is the first completed building by LegoRogers, a collaboration between international architectural practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and Mexican firm Legorreta + Legorreta. The architecture brings together both practice’s different architectural languages yet common values to create a building that is both contextual and distinctive.
