Ioanna Theocharopoulou holds degrees in architecture from the Architectural Association in London (AA Diploma), and from Columbia University (MSAAD and Ph.D. in Architecture: History & Theory.) Her dissertation, which she is now developing into a book manuscript, explored the historical proliferation of informal urbanism with a focus on postwar Athens, and tried to construct conceptual tools for analysis. Her most recent research and teaching focuses on issues of urbanization and sustainability as well as on the history and theory of sustainable design. Her work has appeared in numerous publications, including the anthologies Urban Design Ecologies, edited by Brian McGrath (Wiley, 2013), Landscapes of Development, edited by Panayiota Pyla, (Harvard University Graduate School of Design, 2013), Modern Architecture and the Mediterranean, edited by Jean-Francois Lejeune and Michelangelo Sabatino (Routledge, 2009), and Negotiating Domesticity: Spatial Productions of Gender in Modern Architecture, edited by Hilde Heynen and Gulsum Baydar, (Routledge, 2005). She also recently contributed to the Theatrum Mundi / Global Street project, curated by Richard Sennett and Saskia Sassen.
