In 2011 TALLER won a competition in Kyiv that changed the course of the office forever. The people that Pablo and Julian met on that trip helped their company grow and work in a wide variety of socio-economic and geographical contexts, continuously shaping their worldview. 7 years later, TALLER is working alongside the Mayor of Bogota in some of the city´s biggest projects. They recently opened an office in the Netherlands and are working in a different timezone. This is the story of what happened after the 30th of April, 2011...

TALLER is currently working with the City of Bogotá on the conceptual design of the Environmental Circuit, an initiative that seeks to open access to the ecological infrastructure of the city enabling proper pedestrian use and enjoyment. Within the Environmental Circuit is a natural reserve of 14000 hectares: the Eastern Mountains. They are currently designing more than 100 kilometers of trails which are to connect the city from north to south allowing the public enjoyment of this natural and cultural heritage.

TALLER's work along important local offices like TAB on the design of the new campus for Universidad Central and Juan Pablo Ortiz on the new engineering labs building for Universidad Javeriana are currently under construction and expect to be completed early 2019.
