Overview

Taalman Koch Architecture is a collaborative and culturally focused architecture firm in Los Angeles. Borrowing from their earliest artists' collaborations such as the TRESPASSING houses x artists project and the Dia : Beacon museum, the firm's founders, Linda Taalman and Alan Koch, have cultivated a working method that empirically responds to the specific situations of each project. Rather than overlaying a singular architectural language to their various projects, they uncover design opportunities by allowing cultural and contextual influences to blend with the specifics of practicing architecture. This kind of open-minded attention to each new project results in sensitive solutions that emphasize multi-sensory experiences, site specificity, and the phenomenology of place.
