About Us

Architects + Visualizers

Architects + Visualizers (A+V) is one step beyond “Anaparastasis”, our former CG architectural visualization firm. Transferring into the new scheme the experience and expertise gained between 1995 and 2013, our portfolio includes hundreds of computer visualization projects ranging across all types and scales of architectural, urban, as well as artistic objects, in Greece and abroad. The majority of our work involves mostly large-scale projects commissioned in Greece by artists, architects, developers, construction groups, and government agencies.

In A+V we also provide services, support and consultancy, while we seek partnerships, in special design projects having particular mathematical, geometrical or technical interest. Our contribution combines solid CG visualization experience with a range of research expertise spanning over AI design methods, integrated building, arch-industrial and arch-artistic design. We strive to extend the very notion of Visualization, by introducing novel geometric and mathematical ideas to our approach. Examples of our research-oriented work may be found in Research + Vision page

Olga Venetsianou

Olga Venetsianou has studied architecture in the Canterbury School of Architecture in the UK (1999) and in the National Technical University of Athens (2002). Following a few years of architectural practice, she went on to complete the MA in Digital Arts in the Athens school of Fine Arts (2006). She holds a PhD from the School of Architecture – University of Thessaly (2014) funded by a scholarship from the Alexander S. Onassis foundation. Her research focuses on the spatial qualities of the projection system in projection-based installations. Her work has been published in scientific journals and presented in international conferences. She is also an elected member of the Association of Greek Architects and representative of the Technical Chamber of Greece in the BIM (Building Information Modeling) workgroup of the Architects’ Council of Europe.
