Προσωπικό Προφίλ

Η Πόπη Ιακώβου είναι κάτοχος διδακτορικού διπλώματος από το Bartlett School of Architecture (2017), με υποτροφίες από το Ίδρυμα Α.Γ. Λεβέντη και το FfWG (UK). Εκπόνησε μεταπτυχιακές σπουδές με θέμα στην ‘Αρχιτεκτονική και την Κινούμενη Εικόνα’ στο University of Cambridge (2004), με υποτροφία από το Cambridge Commonwealth Trust. Είναι απόφοιτος Διπλώματος Αρχιτεκτονικής από το Αριστοτέλειο Πανεπιστήμιο Θεσσαλονίκης (2002).Έχει διδακτική εμπειρία σε ιδρύματα ανώτατης εκπαίδευσης, όπως το Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (UK) University of Cambridge (UK), το Πανεπιστήμιο Νέαπολις και το Πανεπιστήμιο Λευκωσίας.
 
Η έρευνα της είναι διεπιστημονική και συγκεράζει θεωρητικές με σχεδιαστικές ερευνητικές μεθόδους. Εστιάζει στις σχέσεις μεταξύ Αρχιτεκτονικής και Performance, με Μέσα Επικοινωνίας. Μελετά πώς τα καθημερινά δρώμενα και η θεατρικότητα συμβάλλουν στην παραγωγή του χώρου ως κοινωνικό πεδίο. Η σχεδιαστική μεθοδολογία της, αφορά στον πειραματισμό με την κινούμενη εικόνα ως εργαλείο για την κριτική ανάγνωση και καταγραφή των χωροχρονικών φαινομένων του χώρου και του τόπου, σε διαφορετικές κλίμακες. Διερευνά τη δυνατότητα που προσφέρουν τα time-based media για ανάλυση, σχεδιασμό και αναπαράσταση του χώρου, εστιάζοντας σε ζητήματα που αφορούν τη χωρική εμπειρία, τη χρήση του χώρου και τη χρονικότητα.
 
Το ερευνητικό και σχεδιαστικό της έργο έχει δημοσιευτεί και παρουσιαστεί σε βιβλία, διενθή περιοδικά, συνέδρια, εκθέσεις και φεστιβάλ.

Profile Information

Popi Iacovou is an architect and design researcher investigating trans-disciplinary models of thinking and practicing architecture. She received a PhD by Architectural Design (2017) from the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, funded by A.G Leventis Foundation and the FfWG (UK). She holds an MPhil on ‘Architecture and the Moving Image’ (2004) from the University of Cambridge funded by Cambridge Commonwealth Trust and a Diploma in Architecture (2002) from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. She has extensive teaching experience at institutions such as the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, the University of Cambridge, Neapolis University and University of Nicosia.
 
Her research explores the intersections between architecture, performance and the moving image. It investigates how the everyday and the theatrical, as spatial events, produce architecture as a social field. Her methodology is based on situated filmic practice as design research method that investigates spatio-temporal phenomena across different scales. It explores the potential of time-based media (i.e. cinematic techniques, mixed media animation and digital video) for analysing, designing and representing architecture by addressing issues of spatial experience, occupation and temporality.
 
She has published internationally and her films and architectural design work has been shown in various film festivals and architectural exhibitions. Some selected exhibitions she participated are: the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale (2018), Space and the Architecture of Compassion (Michael Cacoyannis Foundation, Athens, 2017) the 7th Biennale of Young Greek Architects (2012-2013), Research Projects (Bartlett, 2010, 2012), Hong Kong and Shenzhen Bi-City Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism (2009), the Unbuilt (Byzantine Museum of Athens), The View from Here (The Bartlett, Slade and BBC, 2009, London), the International Thessaloniki Dance Film Festival, 11th and 12th Biennale of Young Creators of Europe and Mediterranean (2003,2005), Monaco Dance Forum 2005, Design Cinema 2008 (Istanbul) and others.
