Gabriela Carrillo | TALLER|Mauricio Rocha + Gabriela Carrillo, Mexico City


Gabriela Carrillo Valadez, a founding principal of Mexico City based TALLER | MauricioRocha+ GabrielaCarrillo, focuses on “the importance of the vernacular, craftsmanship, sustainability, and socially-responsible design.” It is through the “manipulation of proportion, volume, light, and material” that the firm investigates and creates its architecture. Named one of the 2014 Emerging Voices by the Architectural League, the firm has a robust body of work, including the San Pablo Oztotepec Market in Milpa Alta, Mexico City, which received the Gold Medal VII Biennial of Mexican Architecture; the Plastic Arts School at the Universidad Autónoma Benito Juárez de Oaxaca, which received the Gold Medal XI Biennal of Mexican Architecture; and Cineteca Nacional Siglo XXI, Museum of Cinema, Digital Video Library, Laboratory, Central Patio, and Garage, Mexico City. Current work includes the Oral Judgment Courts in Lazaro Cardenas and Patscuaro; a Four Seasons resort in Tamarindo, Jalisco; and a photography museum in Cuatro Caminos. Both Rocha and Carrillo graduated with honors from the Faculty of Architecture of Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). Rocha has been a fellow and jury member for the National Fund for Culture and the Arts (FONCA) and has, since 2011, served as Academician of the National Academy of Architecture. Carrillo began collaborating with TALLER DE ARQUITECTURA in 2001, serving as Project Director from 2006 to 2011, when the two founded TALLER IMauricioRocha+GabrielaCarrilloI. She has taught at the Instituto Superior de Arquitectura y Diseño ISAD) and the Universidad Iberoamericana.
