Robert I. Romo is a dual degree master of architecture master of city and regional planning student at the University of Pennsylvania. After a brief foray into the legal profession, and an undergraduate education in foreign policy, Robert realized that for him, the most effective way to make an argument is through design. Robert’s approach to architecture and urban design recognizes and seeks to engage in the complex interplay of political, economic, and cultural power dynamics that shape the urban realm.
