Shortlisted for Dezeen Awards 2022 architecture studio of the year, ZAV Architects is an architecture studio based in Tehran, Iran.

The Tehran-based ZAV Architects pushes architecture beyond its pre-established elite limits, addressing the production process of architecture rather than its final product.

By re-evaluating this process's components such as scenario, tectonics, and typology, architecture becomes adaptive to an ever-ongoing discourse between the issues internal and external to the discipline.

ZAV believes to have a dialogistic and discursive approach toward the real concerns of people both as individuals and members of communities. The delivered aesthetics is the result of such dynamics, as the experience of the space unfolds for those who are exposed to it.

This studio has been shortlisted in the architecture studio of the year category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
