Finalists in the Qionglai Mountain Water Tower City Conceptual Planning and Design Competition

Our proposal for the conceptual Planning and Design of Huilan Tower titled “One Island, Two Banks” made it to the final stage. The Sichuan Province in Southwest China is located in the transitional zone between urban and rural areas in Qionglai city, with rich natural, ecological, historical, and cultural resources.

The location and development policy pose new challenges for the future growth of the region. How can we attract talent in traditional agriculture and rural industries in order to complete the industrial transformation? How can we strengthen local cultural identity to form artistic and creative agency? How can we avoid falling prey to the same tourism developments in order to form unique local advantages?

‘City’ and ‘Nature’ have always been intertwined. We have long thought they are separate entities, but we now know they need to coexist and thrive together. Our vision for this project reflects how we can systematically link these two realities.

Collaboration with LOLA Landscape and L+CC.

Five public projects break ground simultaneously in Tultitlán, México

As part of an ambitious Urban Improvement Program (PMU) spearheaded by SEDATU (Governmental Secretariat of Agricultural, Territorial and Urban Development) the initiative consists of a series of strategically located interventions in different parts of the city of Tutlitlán, north of México City. The central government’s main focus is to build high-quality social and public infrastructure within deprived communities around the country.

The upgrade of the Historical Center, a new Municipal Market, a Fire Station and two (2) Cultural Centers are set to start construction as demolitions began this month. The five projects were designed as a family of public buildings, inspired by the industrial constructions seen throughout the city. From the distinct shape of industrial roofs, to materiality and structural solutions, the projects subvert the idea of industrial constructions in the service of economic growth and instead become cultural buildings surrounded by a generous public space that seeks to improve the quality of life for all citizens.

Designed in partnership with ORU, Departamento del Distrito, and Ricardo G. Santander; construction is expected to finish mid 2022.

Architecture at the helm of economic recovery in Bogotá’s traditional markets: The case of La Concordia Amphitheater

Following the positive response from the first economic reactivation prototype built for La Perseverancia; the traditional market of La Concordia, located at the historic city center of Bogotá was also interested in being part of the design-build initiative led by the Colombian Society of Architects (SCA).

This opportunity presented a different type of challenge, the outdoor space available was not as scarce and there was also room for diverse programmatic activities. The SCA assembled a team of professionals under the direction of TALLER’s partner Julian Restrepo, who coordinated the design-build efforts after having engaged and involved the community in the process.

The end result is a scaffolding structure with three different layers: retail spaces at ground level, elevated dining platforms and a public rooftop with a dedicated staircase. The U-shaped structure also serves as an amphitheater for cultural events and gatherings. The structure towers over the city center as a symbol of economic reactivation and recovery of the market.

The architectural design was a collaboration between architects Henry Gualdrón, Alejandro Saldarriaga and German Bahamón (Colab-19). The construction was made possible thanks to a number of sponsors, donors and patrons.
