A totem is a cultural construct that mediates between a human community and its nonhuman milieu. The role of the totem is to interconnect different spheres of reality.

TAAs (ToTem arquitectos asociados) was founded in 2005 by Javier and Alia García-Germán as a professional practice focused on architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and urban planning. Our commitment is to find synergies between design practices and sustainability issues, responding in an innovative manner to emerging demands.

TAAs’ work has been widely published and exhibited, and has received several national and international awards for projects and finished buildings.
