Enrique Norton was born on February 27th, 1954 in Mexico City, Mexico. His father came to Mexico as part of the German Jewish diaspora of the 1940s. As a young child, Enrique enjoyed taking apart toys and putting them back together, only to figure out the intricacies of how they worked. This was the making of ingenious child. As a young youth, Enrique’s parents aspired for him to become a doctor or lawyer, but his passion was elsewhere. In 1978 Enrique Norton graduated from Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City, Mexico with a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture. He continued to pursue his education further. Two years later, in 1980 Enrique graduated from the widely acclaimed American architectural college, Cornell University in Ithaco, New York with his Master’s degree of Architecture. Enrique Norton began his professional career as an architect with his first practice in Mexico City, Mexico. It was one year later in 1981, after he obtained his master’s in architecture, that Enrique had become a partner in an architectural firm called Albin y Norton Arquitectos.
Enrique will be interviewed by DK our Teulo Talks MC about his journey throughout the years in architecture. Enrique will discuss the projects his firm has worked on and delve deep into the journey and process.
In the past three decades, the firm's projects have been recognized with numerous awards, such as the 2009 Institute Merit Design Award from the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter for the Xochimilco Master Plan and Aquarium and a National 2009 Institute Honor Award For Regional And Urban Design from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for the Orange County Great Park. In 2005, he was presented with the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts for his valuable contributions in promoting the contemporary Mexican architecture.
