Evangelos Pantazis is an architectural engineer, building scientist, computational designer and educator.
His research expertise is in complex geometric modelling and generative design strategies in conjunction with daylighting, energy modelling and performance driven design workflows across scales. His work empowers non-specialized architects and designers to develop design alternatives which couple critical design parameters with energy demand and supply, comfort, and livability. To date, he has authored and co-authored journal papers, peer reviewed scientific articles and book chapters.
Prior to joining IBI in 2019, Evan was a member of i-lab and Schema Lab at the Viterbi School of Engineering, where his research was supported by a fellowship from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Energy (DOE) and Autodesk Inc. In practice Evangelos has worked for Graft Architects in Berlin, Studio Pei-Zhu in Beijing, Buro Happold Engineering in Los Angeles, has co-founded Topotheque design research studio and he is the CTO of Fablab Ioannina.Evan holds a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where he was a fellow of both Onassis and Myronis Foundation. Additionally he holds a Master in Computer Aided Architectural Design from the Swiss Federal University of Technology (ETH) in Zurich and a Diploma in Architectural Engineering from the Aristotle’s University in Thessaloniki.
