Pierre-Louis Taillandier is an architecture graduate of the School of Architecture of Toulouse (1989, France) and an Urban Planning graduate of the University of California Los Angeles (1992, USA).
Pierre-Louis Taillandier is, above all, an architect, but an architect convinced by and sensitive to the idea that architecture is a result of its urban context. He has always dedicated himself to the act of building, combining architecture, urban planning, and quality of the living spaces with a natural curiosity and the absence of preconceived ideas.
Over time, he continued evolving and growing in his practice, applying the same standard of rigor to the projects entrusted to him. He always favors adaptation to context, function, and particularities rather than ready-made solutions and advocates a cross-skilled approach to confronting different ideas and points of view.
Today, with almost 100 collaborators gathered around him, he promotes a common culture within his team through monthly workshops by sharing the agency’s projects as well as the intervention of external consultants.
Founded in 1993 by Pierre-Louis Taillandier, Taillandier Architectes Associés (TAA) is an architecture and urbanism agency based in Toulouse, France. TAA is an open-minded studio, working side by side with private and public partners. The people at TAA give their best to develop architectural solutions. Regardless of the nature of the project, the answer has to improve the quality of life of the end user and the direct environment. Every project designed by Taillandier Architectes Associés solves a series of equations blending program, user, and environmental specifics. To achieve a truly obvious architectural and urban solution, Pierre-Louis Taillandier set up a rational and efficient methodology splitting the project into five dimensions: contextual, intellectual, technical, financial, and sensitive.
