Adriana Chávez, Victor Rico, and Elena Tudela founded ORU – Oficina de Resiliencia Urbana in Mexico City in 2018. Working across the academic, public, and private sectors, the practice advocates for “scaled-up architectural thinking to foster new futures of interconnected urban regions, strengthened ecological structures, and resilient human and non-human communities,” in its own words. With a profound sensitivity to each project’s environmental and social context, ORU produces a broad spectrum of work, from regional analyses and strategic plans to landscapes, buildings, and exhibitions.

ORU won a 2021 World Landscape Architecture Award and was shortlisted for the 2022 Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize. The practice has participated in the Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism and the Venice Biennale of Architecture.
