The Architectural League’s annual Emerging Voices program spotlights North American architects, landscape architects, and urban designers who have significant bodies of realized work and the potential to influence their field.

Taller Capital won a 2021 award.

Mexico City-based architecture and urban design studio Taller Capital was founded in 2010 by José Pablo Ambrosi and Loreta Castro-Reguera. Their work “focuses on designing the city through densification and infrastructural public spaces.” With a particular attention to water, the studio has applied extensive research to the development of urban design projects that address water management in Mexico City and beyond. 

Projects include:

Taller Capital was the winner of the 2015 Eco Pavilion and was awarded a silver medal at the 2017 Mexico City Biennial. 

Ambrosi studied architecture at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and holds an MBA from Instituto Panamericano de Alta Dirección de Empresas (IPADE).

Castro-Reguera studied architecture at UNAM and at the Accademia di Architettura di Mendrisio. She holds a master’s degree in urban design from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design and has been a professor at UNAM since 2011. Castro-Reguera received the 2018 Global Gold Prize and the 2017 Latin America Gold Prize from the LafargeHolcim Awards for Sustainable Construction.
