INTRODUCTION TO ARCHITECTURAL COMPOSITION AND ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN METHODOLOGIES

Biography

Born in Athens in 1970. She graduated from the School of Architecture of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 1996. She completed her Master’s Degree (2001) with distinction (IKY, State Scholarships Foundation) at the Postgraduate Program of NTUA, Architectural Design – Space – Culture. She is a licensed Architect (1997), member of the Technical Chamber of Greece (TEE) and the Greek Architects Association (SADAS-PEA). Since 2011 she is member of AHRA (Architectural Humanities Research Association).

She teaches Architectural Design at the Department of Architecture of the University of Thessaly since 2003. She has previously taught as a tutor (1999-2002) at the School of Architecture of NTUA on both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

In 2005 she co-founded A Whale’sarchitects, an office based in Athens and Brussels doing objects, edifices and research on how the former are being produced and used. Space is studied as a field that delivers relationships, as a generator of contingent daily events via the combination of movement, visual perception and plural use. Taking into account the anthropogenic character of the production of edifices and the importance of artisanship as fundamental knowledge in social economy and culture, they support the distribution of free lance labor in the production of design objects. Rather than adjusting readymade industrial items, they design and produce buildings and prototype objects in collaboration, exclusively, with qualified artisans and small or family industries.          

She has participated in more than 90 architectural/ design projects. Her theoretical, academic and built work has been presented in various exhibitions, workshops, conferences and journals (Greek and international), while she has co-edited two books on the contemporary perception of Le Corbusier’s work in Greece. She has been a member of the collective of the Greek Architects Association (SADAS-PEA) that curated the Greek participation in the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale (#ThisIsACo-Op, 2016).

Ηer current academic interests focus on three main fields: first, on epistemological and cognitive topics related to architectural composition and the material production of architectural forms (with methods of analysis conducted by design), second, on popular culture and third, on the political dimension that determines the relationship between knowledge (omitted history), architectural design and the organization of space, based on the theoretical framework described as Epistemologies of the South.
