Aris Gkitzias

Delft, NL



I studied Architecture at the National Technical University of Athens (2002-2009) and I recently graduated with honors from the M.Sc. in Building Technology at the Technical University of Delft (2011- 2013).

I am a self-motivated, creative and hardworking person. My interests cover a wide range of topics related to architectural and façade design under a sustainable perspective.

I am highly adept at carrying out technical drawings and I have a proficient knowledge of various 3D design software, as well as, BIM (Revit). I also have a basic understanding of generative algorithms and parametric design due to my experience using Grasshopper integrated with Rhino’s 3D modeling.

The energy efficient design is one of my specializations as an architect. My sensitivity in understanding the energy impact of my designs was a motivation to orient my studies toward the field of building physics. Thus, during the last year of my studies in TU Delft with my M.Sc. Thesis, as well as, with my participation in relevant research studies, I have acquired a solid background in various thermal and energy consumption simulation software, such as Design Builder, Physibel CAPSOL and TRNSYS-TRNFlow.
