Gyaw Gyaw team consist of a small and dedicated team of colleagues that has been working closely together since 2009.
The majority of us are Karen ethnics that through different life roads ended up in the small border village named Noh Bo. Norwegian architect, Line Ramstad, came to the same village on a temporary architect project in 2008, and we all met at the building site.
In 2009 we founded Gyaw Gyaw together, and with different skills and knowledge, we have all contributed to a slow and sustainable development of our projects, as well as our own organization.
Since the majority of us are without formal education and writing and reading abilities are limited, our team is a good reflection of the society we live and work. Different religious beliefs are also represented.
In 2016, South Korean/German architect Jae-Young Lee, and Norwegian architect, Daniel Evensen, also got included. As skilled architects with thorough knowledge of culture, climate and materials in the Karen areas, they have further developed our projects and skills and contributed to professionalized our organization.
