A young, cooperative architecture practice based in Trondheim, Norway and founded in 2008 by Andreas G. Gjertsen and Yashar Hanstad, TYIN tegnestue has already built in Thailand, Myanmar, Haiti, Uganda and their native Norway. Though the partners are relatively young, the quality of their designs has earned them the important distinction of being recognized for The European Prize for Architecture (joining the ranks of GRAFT, BIG and Marco Casagrande). And their projects have been pretty popular with ArchDaily’s readers, too.

TYIN tengstue started working as students, and the success of their firm has been dependent on their ability to find a way to fund the kind of work they were passionate about in school. For us, their approach to knowledge sharing is notable; they make their projects completely available. Also, when they build and create new architecture that uses traditional materials, they train local work forces so that the designs can be replicated–giving the architecture a better chance for proliferating within the context it was specifically design for.
