On 6th May, Julian Restrepo and Pablo Forero, founders of the Colombian architecture company "Taller 301", held a lecture at the “ARCAM” architecture centre in Amsterdam. These two young architects have been recognized by “Marca País” as Colombian professionals who have helped shine a spotlight on our architecture with their projects abroad.

The purpose of their trip to the Netherlands and Denmark was to develop strategic alliances with different Dutch companies to allow an exchange in culture and knowledge in future projects. Those projects, undoubtedly, will have the philosophical slogan: "a good design consists in doing as much as you can with almost nothing".

Since "Taller 301" was created, they have been participating in international competitions and have been awarded for projects such as the Urban Renovation in Kiev, Ukraine, and the special mention for the construction of the Disaster Centre in Istanbul, Turkey.

The lecture was supported by the Embassy of Colombia to the Netherlands, Procolombia and Marca País.

This is one more example that in talent: The answer is Colombia.
