José Rojas (1978, Mexico City) lives and works in Mexico City. He has a BA in Architecture by the Universidad Iberoamericana and completed an MDes from the Design Academy Eindhoven. His work has been shown in the International Architecture Biennale in Rotterdam, Tensta Konsthall, Sweden, and his Master's thesis Project developed at the EKWC (European Ceramic Work Centre ) was granted cum laude .
His work departs from a direct relationship with materials. Based on experimentation, his work does not stand on a clear idea of the results which allow him to develop projects as diverse as bricks that respond to various natural processes, moss and lichen carpets and upholstery, water walls or moldless concrete castings. A search for a new place in architecture outside the computer questioning the monotony and limits of 'style' and repetition, as well as contemporary architect's sophistication of the 'modern' formula. 
For his first solo show in Mexico, Rojas presents a series of exercises that have as a departing point the methods of Kurt Schwitters , Juan O'Gorman and Frank Lloyd Wright, in order to talk about a more intimate, imperfect and non definitive architecture.
