NYU Polytechnic School
Master of Science, May 2012
A native of Greece, Evangelos received his Master’s of Architecture degree from MIT, is a LEED AP, and an Associate member of the American Institute of Architects. He has worked for several architecture firms in New York and Boston, and has served as adjunct faculty at the New York Institute of Technology, where he taught courses in Visualization, Urban Theory and Sustainability. His goal is to spread the message about the importance of affordable sustainable architecture through both practice and education, by establishing a non-profit design collaborative that will offer pro-bono sustainable architecture services and education to low-income families and communities.
For Evangelos, social entrepreneurship stretches to his undergraduate years at Hobart & William Smith Colleges, where he received his bachelor’s degree in fine arts and architecture studies. There, he led a student group that worked to end crimes against humanity, an early signal of his passion for civic involvement. Evangelos also lead an architecture student group and wrote his honors about Affordable Sustainable Architecture, an interest which he has carried with him ever since, through his architecture studies at MIT, to his teaching and his practice. Now Evangelos hopes to make affordable sustainable architecture part of his focus at NYU-Polytechnic.
