Athanasios Paparis was born in Athens and raised in Kavala Greece. He studied architecture at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. He finished his master’s degree in 2019. He worked as a RIBA Part II Architect in Collective Architecture and Antipas Jones Architects in Dublin. He now works for Etsi Architects in Mani, Greece.
He has a deep interest in philosophy, history, the arts, psychology, folklore, and the natural environment. Part of his interests revolves around a variety of themes from sustainability and autonomy, the vernacular, ideas of identity and environmentalism to classical and rational architectural composition and theory.
Since his teenage graffiti years, he is drawn to visual experimentation and more radical/alternative ways of representing architecture involving graphic design, typography, video, mixed media, and collage.
