arch+ech

architecture + technology

Zeta Kachri is a registered Architect in Greece and the UK and has worked and collaborated in several commercial and non-commercial projects. She studied her diploma (MSc) in National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and continued her studies in Bartlett (UCL), where she got her MSc degree in Adaptive Architecture and Computation.

Her work has always been inspired by the use of new technologies in order to enhance functionality and interactivity. In 2008, she joined ‘arch+ech’ to share her passion on architecture and creative design with Tasos Varoudis. In 2009, she started to explore the algorithmic design and the beauty of self-assembling structures.
