TANK is an architectural practice established by Olivier Camus and Lydéric Veauvy in 2015. Marked by a strong friendship that formed while students at the University of Saint-Luc de Tournai, the duo has since elaborated central concerns for architectural thinking and concepts spanning diverse scales and programmes dedicated to more humane and ecologically responsible environments. Embracing sensible, poetic and spatial qualities of architecture, TANK addresses the necessity to create projects in which form, function, and materiality establish a certain coherence and a meaningful, symbolic bond.
TANK has received numerous awards and honours, such as NASA in 2006, the Europe 40 Under 40 Award from the European Center for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies, and the Chicago Athenaeum in 2011, and has been nominated for the Prix d'architecture de l’Equerre d’argent in 2009, 2010 and 2016. Most recently, the office received the Trophées Eiffel 2020, Archinovo and the German Design Award 2020 for the House Mouvaux in Lille. The firm's monograph, TANK, a compilation of essays, research, and projects covering a decade of the office’s work, was published in 2017.
