Atelier TAG is an architecture and research partnership founded in 1997 by Manon Asselin and Katsuhiro Yamazaki. Through the careful study of sociocultural contexts within which a given program operates, their work aims at redefining the civic function of architecture and at creating meaningful experiences for its users. The team’s design methodology focuses on building technique and materiality. Their built work explores the material realm of architecture as an experiential field that engages, at a fundamental level, the consciousness of the body in space, and space grounded in a particular territory.
