The Lorenzo H. Zambrano Award will be presented on 7 November 2019, during the 2019 CEMEX Building Award Ceremony, to commemorate the professional career of Benjamin Romano, the architect in charge of building the iconic Reforma Tower, Tres Picos Tower, and Chapultepec Tower in Mexico City, Mexico. This award recognises the contributions of architects who create better environments for communities and inspire new generations to innovate.
“We enjoy almost two decades of distinguishing and recognising the world’s top professional architects, who contribute their ideas and talent to building better communities. Benjamin Romano and his work clearly exemplify that quality, sustainability, and beauty can seamlessly converge in the same project,” said Ricardo Naya, President of CEMEX Mexico.
In addition to his work as a professional architect, Romano has actively served as a Professor of Project and Construction Cycle at the Ibero-American University since 1982. He has also given various diploma programme courses and participated in the Co-ordination of the Construction Cycle, as well as in the revision of the curriculum of the UIA School of Architecture.
In 2016, Romano received the gold medal at the XIV National and International Biennial of Mexican Architecture, while his iconic Reforma Tower won the 2018 International Highrise Award as the best skyscraper in the world.
