Hey guys! My name is Athena, I’m 23 years old.
I’m from Cyprus but I grew up in both London and Cyprus. I studied for my undergraduate degree at the University Of Nottingham . I am now part of the &rchitecture atelier and I have a passion for designing for the needs of the people.
If I wasn’t studying architecture, I would have studied Sports Science.

Activities & Skills:
Our key objective is to develop a series of concept designs. These concept designs will be of mobile pod structures that aim to catch the imagination & creativity of the children. The pods should be interactive and facilitate all ages as they will be used by the whole community.
Through an online workshop environment, we will invite undergraduate students to join us and work together in small groups. In our group, students will learn essential skills that will benefit and further their studies.
We will start off by brainstorming ideas for the design of the pods followed by an activity where we will attempt to think in the mind of a child: how they interact with space and materials. We will then start to develop, design & test concepts for the pods and create various diagrams and collages.
To achieve this, various computer software such as AutoCAD, SketchUp, InDesign and Photoshop will be employed (a series of workshops for the students to learn how to use the above mentioned software will be provided). Furthermore, Handmade models and sketches will also be encouraged to produce a series of mix media ideas and concepts.
