Hey, I am Eirini Christofidou a proud member of the MArch course in the Sheffield School of Architecture (SSoA). Currently a fifth year, I have completed my Part I studies in the University of Bath. Since my final year in Bath, I have been interested in how users (both dwellers and architects) use the landscape to form spaces. Has the green space become a parasite in the urban environment, and if so how can we delegate a more sustainable relationship with nature?
Main projects I have designed or participated in so far are:
Studio 07: Resilient Communities, a studio led by Mr. John Sampson in collaboration with igloo director, Mr. David Roberts, based in the Lower Ouseburn Valley in Newcastle.
Studio 03: Goes Neighbourly, an ongoing design project for the development of a sustainable future neighbourhood, in collaboration with the Department of Physics, tutored by: Mrs. Prue Chiles, University of Sheffield, 2011-2.
Growing (in) Todmorden: Live Project 04, developed with Incredible Edible Todmorden, Agency under SSoA, tutored by: Mr. John Sampson, Miss Kim Trogal, and Dr. Doina Petrescu, University of Sheffield, 2011.
Bath Homeopathic Institute, Final year design thesis, designed in collaboration with Dr. Elizabeth Thompson head of the Bristol Homeopathy Hospital, University of Bath, 2011.
Bristol Film Institute, Basil Spence Student Competition, University of Bath, 2010. A group project (architects working with structural and environmental engineers) aimed to design a “carbon-zero” film institute on Spike Island in Bristol.
