Alex Mademochoritis is a Greek-French Architectural Designer and Master in City and Technology researcher, whose focus is on projects that produce creative and radical applications of new technologies in the urban environment, as well as spatial and material experimentations that push the known technological and architectural limits.
His interests lie in what will most affect the future of humanity: the internet, sustainable energy, the permanent extension of life beyond Earth, artificial intelligence and genetics. He is currently the coordinator of the Master in City and Technology programme at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC).
In 2014 he was the architectural assistant of the Head Architect at the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens and in 2015 he collaborated with the Architectural Association’s Design + Make programme for the construction of the robotically fabricated Wood Chip Barn project.
During his academic career he participated in several research projects related with information and communication technologies in the urban environments such as IAAC’s “SUPERBARRIO” a video game that is designed to allow citizens to make proposals for their city and “FabHood” a digital platform for the FabCity movement that aims to create a new information network for the circulation of materials inside a city.
He has also participated in the publication of architectural research such as “From Now to Then: Between Man-Kind and Robot-Kind” in collaboration with IAAC and The Why Factory, as well as “Cinematic Architecture: Cinematic Concepts and the Architectural Praxis” with scientific coordinator Prof. Arch. Angelos I. Psilopoulos at the Technological Educational Institute of Athens.
