George Papapmattheakis

Alumnus 2018/19
THE NEW NORMAL
George Papamattheakis sits on the fence between research and design. First studying Architecture and Urbanism in NTUAthens and ETH Zurich, he became interested in infrastructure space, where the built environment is encoded and manifested. Turning to geography, he established a fascination for planetary scale systems and networks, key forces in contemporary geopower. With his origins in the European South, George also developed a curiosity about errors and deviations in the urban realm, understanding them as particular cosmotechnical traits. Fusions of the above are exported in his academic practice, designs, and writings, having contributed to journals such as Footprint, Log, Clog, Cartha and Strelka Mag.
