Petr Shevchenko an Artist Going Beyond

EN | GR

Petr Shevchenko is a really good friend. Together we’ve had many laughs; he is kind-hearted and is always there to listen and encourage me. He is an amazing artist and I truly adore his art that channels so much spirituality and magic! His great talent will be showcased in a collateral event in this year’s Venice Biennale.

I’m so proud to write about K-Studio, an architecture firm based in Athens, Greece, not only because it was established by UCL graduates, Dimitris and Konstantinos Karampatakis, whom I have known since childhood, but more importantly because it has created some astonishing, well-known projects, both locally and internationally. To me, their work over the years is a testament that the Greek talent has no limits. And that creative experimentation and fresh thinking can lead to exciting architectural experiences on every scale and in all aspects of life. Continue Reading
