About TYIN Architects
TYIN tegnestue Architects was established in 2008 by Masters of Architecture Andreas G. Gjertsen and Yashar Hanstad. TYIN is currently run and has its headquarters in the Norwegian city of Trondheim.
The office has completed several projects in poor and underdeveloped areas of Thailand, Burma, Haiti and Uganda, as well as in Norway.
TYIN has gained broad recognition for their engaging and tactile architecture. They won several international awards and their projects have been published and exhibited worldwide.
This is how TYIN describes their practice:
”Solutions to real and fundamental challenges call for an architecture where everything serves a purpose – an architecture that follows necessity. By involving the local populace actively in both the design and building of their projects, TYIN are able to establish a framework for mutual exchange of knowledge and skills. All materials used in TYIN´s projects are collected close to the sites or purchased from local merchants.”
