About 

My name is Christos Constantinou. I am a purveyor of knowledge, a researcher of the imaginative, a creator of aesthetics and, coincidently, an architect/designer. Recently, I was awarded a Masters degree in Advanced Architectural Design from the GSAPP at Columbia University. Architecture as a design profession has always been a passion that resonates within me, with a desire that extends beyond any ordinary career path. My ambitions within the field exist at the conjunction of computational aesthetics and sustainable design. I am inspired by progressive architecture that challenges contemporary design problems through the collaboration of high performance design solutions and advanced computational technology to create an intelligent built environment.
