Robert I. Romo

My name is Robert Irwin Romo and I am finishing my dual degree Master of Architecture and Master of City and Regional Program this May. I am passionate about the intersection of architecture and urban politics and am fascinated (and sometimes horrified) by what this intersection can create. Before coming to Penn, I studied international affairs at the George Washington University, and lived and worked in Washington, D.C. During my time at the Penn, I have learned how to read architecture and use it as a force for telling stories that can lead to change.
