Gaston Tolila and Nicholas Gilliland began working together in 2003 through a humanitarian architecture competition for which they were laureates.

In 2011, they created the Tolila+Gilliland atelier d’architecture. In 2012, their work received the “Prix d’Architecture du Moniteur 2012 pour la première œuvre” (French national Prize for the first built work).

The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design announced that the architectural office Tolila+Gilliland is part of the selection of this year’s most promising and emerging design talent in Europe for 2014.
