Since 2003 Thanos Athanasopoulos has been practicing Architecture and Urban Design in Greece and the United States. Mr Athanasopoulos studied Architecture at the National Technical University of Athens and at Harvard University Graduate School of Design (Master in Architecture, 2003. He later worked at the New York - based firm of architect Rafael Vinoly. Since 2005, Thanos Athanasopoulos’ architectural practice has been based in Athens, Greece. He has taken over commissions ranging from private residencies to leisure and retail developments.
Although his designs demonstrate much of the character of contemporary south European “white” modernism, he has developed an interest in the innovative use of traditional building materials and construction methods commonly associated with historical architecture. His latest designs also explore smooth, geometrically intricate formal and spatial transitions between the existing urban fabric and the new building that transcend fragmentation towards more integrated wholes.
