Alex Mademochoritis
MaCT Coordinator, Studio & Seminar Faculty / CIEE coordinator

Alex Mademochoritis is a Greek-French architect and urban technologist whose investigations focus on the innovative intersection of urbanism and data science for the transformation of urban environments into responsive, human-centered, ecological and intelligent cities.. He holds a degree in Interior Architecture and Design from the Technical Educational Institute of Athens and a Master in City & Technology (MaCT) from the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC). 

He is the coordinator of IAAC’s MaCT – a master’s program oriented towards redefining the analysis, planning, and design of cities – and faculty at the IAAC’s Advanced Architecture Group (AAG) – an interdisciplinary research group investigating emerging technologies of information, interaction and manufacturing for the design and transformation of cities, buildings and public spaces. 

His research is also actuated as a founding member of the AAG’s Computational Urban Design Research Team, in which he investigates how the combination of big data & computational design can help us not only explore, analyze and evaluate cities but also generate design solutions for the urban environment.
