Kynthia joined LIPID as a PhD candidate in the Doctoral Program EDAR "Architecture and Sciences of the City" in February 2015. She graduated with honors from the Technical University of Crete with a Master's degree (Dipl-Ing) in Architectural Engineering in 2014, receiving the Limmat Stiftung Excellence Award for her academic performance. Her research diploma project, "Memorigami", a prototype temperature-responsive shading system, was presented in international conferences and received an innovation development grant from the 2013 University Student Entrepreneurship Project (UNISTEP). Furthermore, she collaborated with LIPID under the supervision of Dr. Boris Karamata, for the development of a real scale prototype of an arabic-inspired adaptive shading system which responds passively to direct sunlight.
Her doctoral research focuses on how façade patterns and daylight variability shape the way we perceive architectural spaces. Through experiments in virtual and real environments, she aims to broaden our understanding of the complex effects of daylight composition and variation on the subjective experience.
