TVK is an international architecture and urban design office. Pursuing a theoretical and built approach, we aim to capture the complexity and the paradoxical nature of the contemporary earthly situation, to contribute to making it habitable. TVK was founded in Paris in 2003 by Pierre Alain Trévelo and Antoine Viger-Kohler.
New offices: 75 bd Macdonald, 75019 Paris, France.
