Overview

Eva Sopeoglou’s research, academic and professional expertise is in performative and environmental processes in architectural design and architecture. More specifically, her research explores the notion of comfort in architecture as a multi-dimensional quality of inhabitable space, place and the environment. The research considers expanded notions of comfort which include a tectonic, aesthetic, environmental and social-cultural definitions of comfort and the implications in architectural design.

A specific research output is research in the relationship between indoor and outdoor spaces, both in the public or domestic spheres and the design of temporary transitional spaces and the activities they support. A practice-based research approach further explores creative outlooks in architecture and urban design that consider the environment and fabrication technologies. The concepts of the envelope enclosure are considered through a multi-disciplinary approach and overlaps between architecture, textile-design and fashion. The work uses digital fabrication technology to design, fabricate and construct 1:1 prototypes, permeable facades and environmental screens. Eva is collaborating with a metal fabricator to design and fabricate with cutting-edge CAD/CAM technologies.

Moreover, Eva Sopeoglou's research spans into the history of design of spaces of comfort, the architectural vernacular architecture of temporary spaces. In 2012 Eva was a Research Scholar at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal Canada researching the archives of avant-garde British Architect CedricPrice.
