Founded in Texas in 1985, but with roots in the field spanning three generations, Sago International Corporation is a firm offering architecture and construction services. The team consists of a father-and-three-sons core involved in all aspects of the creation of a project. Raul, a prolific Mexican architect and constructor, instilled in Erik, Jair, and Alan a common practice outside the United States - The role of the architect as the conceiver and executioner of ideas.
Having been born in Mexico and moving to Austin, Texas at a young age, the Gonzalez brothers subsequently studied architecture, following in their father’s footsteps. In the context of design, exposure to other cultures, have inevitably influenced Sago’s work: The simplicity of Italian design; the serenity of Japanese architecture; the masterful use of natural materials in Danish interiors; the tenacity toward new ideas for co-existing in the dense urban environment of New York City; and the richness of textures in the Mexican pre-Hispanic cities – all have added to Sago’s multi-perspective and multi-cultural view of design.
