NDC Hires Carlos Talero as Vice President of Architecture
Washington, D.C. – January 7, 2016 – Neighborhood Development Company (NDC) is excited to announce the appointment of Carlos Talero as Vice President of Architecture. He will recruit and build out a full function architectural team that will be responsible for the design of all Neighborhood Development Company projects from concept through delivery.
Carlos is a nationally-recognized architect known for his awarded design solutions. His work uses design as a problem solving tool from programming to turn key, and has been particularly focused on community based institutions and place making in cities. Carlos’ work has received multiple awards from the American Institute of Architects and other organizations, a few of which include Eagle Academy PCS, Kol Shalom Synagogue, and the Franklin School redevelopment competition. In addition, his projects have appeared and been reviewed in broad circulation publications, including The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Washington Post Magazine, ArchitectureDC Magazine, and Architectural Record.
“Carlos is a talented architect, designer and leader who will bring a fresh perspective to our vision,” said Adrian Washington, CEO & Founder, Neighborhood Development Company. “Carlos’ addition to the NDC team is a key step forward in the implementation of our full integration business model that brings Architecture, Construction and Development under one roof.”
Born in Colombia, Carlos is a fluent Spanish speaker who was raised in Boston. He received his architectural degree from Cornell University in 2000, and worked in NYC in studios mainly focused on mixed-use housing in center cities, including that of Gary Handel, until his arrival in DC in 2009. His focus here in the District has been largely on institutional work- some of which was done with our neighbors at Paul PCS and E.L. Haynes.
With over 15 years of experience, he is extremely enthusiastic about our new venture and finding ways in which we as a business and the city can benefit from this new model.
