Tabe Shouri was founded in New York City by Fereshteh Tabe and Amir Shouri in 2017. Before the “Tabe Shouri” inception, founding partners established TaShALab (Tabe Shouri Architecture Lab) in New York (2013) to develop their design manifesto, mostly through international architectural competitions.

This path led them to an architectural thinking to create an atmosphere, where its architectural characteristics aim to raise the consciousness of its users. Following working with renowned architectural offices worldwide (including OMA, DBB, and RAMSA) and receiving several prestigious distinctions in the US and Europe; they launched their architectural practice, Tabe Shouri. This practice is the s result of the artistic science of thinking architecture and building awareness, which has been evolving since 2013.

Tabe Shouri’s work, which mainly includes cultural, educational, residential, and mixed-use buildings, is characterized by virtue of its delicate variety of proposals and the subtle declination of the final result. The ideas are deeply rooted in the principles of environmental design and humanism; that are architecturally seeking to convey emotions to a specific atmosphere; and are going to extend over time, while they are expressive and meaningful about challenges.

Among the important recognitions, Tabe Shouri has been distinguished with an announcement from the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York in 2013. The international competition was asking for a proposal to increase the resiliency of shoreline structures against hurricanes and natural disasters following devastating Hurricane Sandy hitting New York. The consciousness about the massive scale of powers in natural disasters and the ability to control and use them was the core of their winning proposal.

In 2016 the project for the Mies van der Rohe Foundation in Barcelona received the second prize in an international competition, where 181 entries expressed their visions for the temporary re-creation of the eight existing columns that were present at the time of building Barcelona Pavilion in 1929. The “Shades of Grey” focused on the transformation that Mies has created from classic architecture to modern architecture by proposing a design concept that is simultaneously delicate and powerful, while also intrinsically connected to surroundings. “Shades of Grey” has been recognized as the 2017 winner of the American Architecture Prize.

In 2019 the project, Hyperwater, was announced as a finalist for the Finnish Pavilion, at Venice Biennale 2020, in which its theme of “how to live together” was answered with the proposal, which was built around the central theme of water, the source of all life, to bring to the Finnish Pavilion an architectural narrative about the future of humanity, democracy, and community, as told through the story of water.

Tabe Shouri’s proposal for Broughton Mosque was selected as a finalist by the Royal Institute of British Architects in 2021; entry received high recognition by the jury panel as the “State of Art Building”. Since 2021, Tabe Shouri is a WBE (Women Business Enterprise).
