Evangelos Pantazis is currently pursuing a PhD at the Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California, supervised Dr. David Gerber. His work lies on the intersection of architecture and engineering and computational modelling and focuses on the use of Multi Agent Systems for building design.
Evangelos holds a Masters of Advanced studies in the field of Computer Aided Architectural Design from the ETH in Zurich (2012). He received his Diploma in Architecture with honors from Aristotle’s University of Thessaloniki (2010), and has also graduated from the MOKUME jewelry design school in 2007, where he was trained as a jeweler. Professionally, Evangelos has gained experience in several international offices, including Graft Architects in Berlin and Studio Pei Zhu in Beijing. Soon after, he co-founded Topotheque design office, a studio that engages computational design with various tangent disciplines, including architecture, furniture/product design and graphics art.
His Ph.D. Research is focusing on the integration of non-linear generative design strategies with environmental and structural analyses as well as construction simulation for architectural purposes.
