Nasios Varnavas


Nasios grew up in Nicosia – Cyprus, where his architectural anima flourished between lines, thresholds and obscure histories. He studied Architecture at the University of Bath and has completed his education at the Bartlett School of Architecture – MArch Architecture/ RIBA II in 2014 with distinction. He has worked for leading design offices – Kengo Kuma Associates in Tokyo, Coop Himmelb(l)au in Vienna, and for Prof.Will Alsop in London who he worked for, side by side as a designer and painter. More recently his passion for digital tools, fabrication and craft, lead to a position at Based Upon, directing the R&D on new projects. Nasios has been involved in academia as a guest critic at the Bartlett, AA, and University of Greenwich where he also co-run Alsop’s Unit 1. Currently he is an undergraduate Design Tutor at the University for the Creative Arts and a Visiting Tutor for Media Studies at the AA. His work fuses digital and analogue techniques into novel meditations that envision architecture as an ephemeral amalgam guided by destruction and construction.
