Dr Dimitris Venizelos


I am an architect, urban designer and geographer. My  research interests are focused on cultural and political geography, urban design and development. Since 2017 I have been a Research Associate at the MesArch Lab of the University of Cyprus, where I contribute to the Lab's research activities on the architectural histories of tourism. Prior to this, I worked in research projects at Harvard University (2014-15) and at the National Technical University of Athens (2013-2017).

I have taught courses on the History and Theory of Architecture at the University of Cyprus (2017), and on Urban Studies at the Faculty of Social Science & Public Policy, King's College London (2019-2020). I currently contribute to the work of the Department of  Architecture and Landscape at Kingston University, as a Course Leader of the MLA and MALU Courses. 

I am a registered Architect in the UK, and the EU. As a practitioner I have worked on a range of architectural, urban design and planning projects, based in Belo Horizonte- Brazil, New York City- USA, Athens- Greece, and Cyprus. I hold a Diploma (MA) of Architect Engineer (2007-2013) from the National Technical University of Athens; a Master of Architecture in Urban design from Harvard University, where I studied as a Fulbright Fellow (2013-2015); and a PhD in Geography from King's College London (2023), funded by the LAHP/AHRC and the Sylvia Ioannou Foundation.
