Alexandra lives her life creating or else architecting, poeting and collaging. Although her education in Architecture (MA, University of Patras), Sustainable Energy planning (Certificate of Specialization, University of Athens) and Construction project management (MSc, Open Hellenic University) enable her to engage in various architectural and landscape projects in Austria and Greece, she decided it is time to return to her roots (Patras, the city of rain) and is determined to create cultural change there. Her peers call her “the creative telescope“ but she defines herself as a “big picture thinker” who gives attention to detail and people stories.
As a Fellow in the 2018 START Program and a collaborator with Quartier in Bremen (Germany), Alexandra aims to capture all the project management tools and placemaking practices in the sociocultural field and apply them to her cause. She strongly believes that architecture is an art practice intended to serve people in their everyday life. This is why she chose a participatory planning project as her starting point. Greek collective contemporary heritage, this is her vision. Let’s be commoners!
