Alec Tzannes

Alexander (Alec) Tzannes is an Australian architect. Tzannes has worked and studied in Australia and abroad in a career spanning more than 30 years. He is the founder of the high-profile, multi-award winning architectural practice Tzannes Associates, established in Sydney in 1982.

In October 2008 Tzannes was appointed Professor and Dean of the Faculty of the Built Environment at the University of New South Wales. He combines a fractional appointment at the University with continuing practice at Tzannes Associates, where he is directing the design of projects in Sydney that include the Brewery at Broadway, two mixed used buildings in the city of Newcastle and several substantial residential commissions.

Tzannes is a graduate of architecture and urban design from Sydney University and Columbia University (Master of Science in Architecture & Urban Design) who began his career in the New South Wales Government Architects Office. He worked with Andrew Andersons at Special Projects and in association with Glenn Murcutt before starting his own practice.

Tzannes Associates is known for its involvement in architectural projects that present particularly challenging or complex criteria - from major urban developments such as the Carlton United Brewery master plan at Sydney's Broadway to significant residential projects.
