Jo Taillieu is among others a manager and architecture professor , but first and foremost he’s an architect. Jo Taillieu is leading the office jo taillieu architecten since 2004 after working with different international architecture firms.The practice of jo taillieu architecten evolved in 2009 to a collaboration with Jan De Vylder and Inge Vinck, with whom he has been leading the office architecten de vylder vinck taillieu for 10 years. In 2018 ‘advvt’ won the Silver Lion for Promising Young Participant at the 16th Biennale of Venice and was one of the five finalists for the Mies van der Rohe Award 2019.
Since 2019 Jo Taillieu shifted the main focus to jo taillieu architecten again, next to the joint projects at architecten de vylder vinck tallieu. Knowledge of the practice, from design to execution, is one of the strengths of jo taillieu architecten. The real effort to execute a design and its realisation remains the most important. In this respect we always strive to the ‘logic of construction’.
