Triptyque is an architectural firm with offices in São Paulo, Brazil and Paris, France. The firm consists of four partners: Greg Bousquet, Carolina Bueno, Guillaume Sibaud and Olivier Raffaelli, all of whom were graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Paris, France. The firm was originally founded in Rio de Janeiro, but after a short period, the office was relocated to São Paulo in 2000.
The name of the office is a literal translation of triptych (an object which appears in various parts), referring to the idea of a dissolving of the different repertoires and cultures of the participants into a single cohesive work. The office is influenced by other fields connected with architecture, such as design, urban planning, and the arts.
