Giorgos Chatzopoulos received his Diploma from the School of Architecture of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). His main interests focus on the one hand on the intersection between architecture, landscape and urbanism and, on the other hand, on the combination of design with theoretical research. After his graduation he has worked for: RCR Arquitectes in Olot, Spain, Kokkinou-Kourkoulas Architects & Associates and Manos Vordonarakis Design+Manufacturing, the latter two posts in Athens, Greece. His diploma thesis was presented at the UIA 2017 Seoul World Architecture Congress and his article Os & Bucca is to be published in issue 27 of Scroope, The Cambridge Architecture Journal. During the academic year 2017-2018, he was an invited collaborator in the teaching team of Professor A. Kourkoulas in the NTUA School of Architecture.
Next year Giorgos will pursue the Master in Architecture II at Harvard GSD. The interdisciplinary engagement which the school promotes between architecture, landscape architecture and urban design together with its commitment to research into alternative and sustainable futures closely parallels his own aspirations. The GSD with its global approach is able to recontextualize his design world and theoretical knowledge—which have been cultivated in the ground of Athens—along a broader horizon, addressing problems that are at the same time local and universal.
