TVK is a Paris-based international architecture and urban design practice created in 2003 by Pierre Alain Trévelo and Antoine Viger-Kohler.
TVK has achieved national recognition notably with the Palmarès des Jeunes Urbanistes in 2005 and the Nouveaux Albums des Jeunes Architectes in 2006, then international with the redevelopment of Place de la République in Paris, Brussels Parkway with the redevelopment of E40 highway or the redevelopment of Lausanne train station square in Switzerland. Since 2012, TVK is a member of the Scientific council of Atelier International du Grand Paris (Greater Paris).

“We are interested in the question of the construction in time. The construction of the city and of the metropolis in time. The aim of our research is to seize the complexity and paradoxical nature of the contemporary city in order to continue its construction. This research crosses therefore essential topics, which are sometimes neglected in the contemporary city; such as the potential of architecture in locations determined by other factors, the role of large modern infrastructures, the status of monumentality, or the environmental condition in the metropolitan context. Architects can no doubt play their part in the construction of a collective culture of metropolitan metamorphoses. With no aesthetic or moral preconceptions, we are daily trying to identify the transitions of adolescent cities towards a still unknown urban era.”  

Educated in architecture and urbanism mainly in Paris and Harvard, Pierre Alain Trévelo and Antoine Viger-Kohler pursue a theoritical and build work through projects, research and writings.
TVK brings together the two founding members of TOMATO Architectes group that produced the book, Paris, La Ville du Péripherique (Paris: The ring road city), published by Le Moniteur in 2003. Since then, the office has continued its editorial activity with the release of  No Limit. Etude prospective de l’insertion urbaine du peripherique de Paris (No Limit. Prospective Study of Urban Integration of the Paris Ring Road), published by Pavillon de l’Arsenal in 2008 and around self-published editorial projects like the book Système Ouvert, les nouveaux mondes du Grand Paris for the Atelier International du Grand Paris or the monographic collection T∀KE.

TVK has cofounded AVALANCHE, a research project focussing on urban territories and systems worldwide, and their transformations and vulnerabilities caused by massive, exponential evolutions in fluxes, demography and environmental conditions.
