Zoe graduated as an Architect Engineer from the Polytechnic School of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece in 2017. Her research thesis was entitled: ‘From crisis scapes to common space: spatial transformations and practices in the post-political city’ and was concerned with the production of the urban space in a socio-political context. Her diploma project: ‘Urban Factory: a microproduction model for the commons’ was a design study on the collective rehabilitation of neglected neighborhoods and the creation of the commons at an urban scale. In 2014, she also studied at the École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Lyon, France as part of her studies. She has worked as an architect in Copenhagen, at the architectural office Urban Agency, working at several scales from the urban to the housing one. She was part of the Atelier d'architecture autogérée in Paris working on self-managed architecture and research concerning urban mutations and cultural, social and political practices in the city. In 2020, she obtained a master’s degree on Design for Emergent Futures from the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, in Barcelona, where she worked as a research assistant for the FabCity research initiative, on the topics of sustainable urban development and local production. Her research interests lie in inclusive and sustainable urban environments, collective processes of spatial production and the act of dwelling.
