Profile of Tyin Tegnestue, headquartered in Norway. Five projects submitted by Tyin Tegnestue have been published on Architecture News Plus (ANP).
TYIN tegnestue is a non-profit organisation working humanitarian through architecture. TYIN is run by Andreas Grøntvedt Gjertsen and Yashar Hanstad and the projects are financed by more than 60 Norwegian companies, as well as private contributions.
Through the course of the last year TYIN has worked with planning and constructing small scale projects in Thailand. We aim to build strategic projects that can improve the lives for people in difficult situations. Through extensive collaboration with locals, and mutual learning, we hope that our projects can have an impact beyond the physical structures.
