Architect, Dancer & Kinetic Designer

Chryssa Varna

Things that move always catch my attention. I have trained as an architect, but I get bored quickly hence I constantly move between the areas of dance, architecture, making and coding. I currently work as a designer/architect in Troika (London), where I lead projects from start to completion - from designing and coding the "behavior" and movement of an artwork to fabricating and installing it-. I was one of the IAL graduates in 2012, and my thesis was about dance improvisation and how it can be a tool for designing spatial interaction within a kinetic performance. I am also a dancer and interested on how choreography and dance can be part of the creative process of an architect/designer through the realm of technology.
