TENSE ARCHITECTURE NETWORK

Tense architecture network / TAN is woven since 2004 by Tilemachos Andrianopoulos and Kostas Mavros as a network of collaborators and works of architecture as well. The practice’s work includes several awarded residences as well as first prize competition proposals –among them a 5000m2 Town Hall in Crete and the rehabilitation of the Venetian Arsenali and their wider surrounding space in the port of Herakleon. Public space and private housing are constantly researched in their work; the two fields are purposely interconnected. Residence in Kifissia was awarded a special mention by the Hellenic Association of Architects and their latest residence in Sikamino was nominated for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture, Mies Van der Rohe Award 2013 and is included in the exhibition shortlist. The meaning of the abbreviation TAN, root of the greek verb ‘ΤΑΝ-ΥΩ’ -to stretch, tend, distend- is unconditionally surrendered to Albert Camus: ‘…immoderation is a comfort, sometimes a career... Measure on the contrary, is pure tension.’
