Adjunct Professor

Ivi Diamantopoulou

Ivi Diamantopoulou is a designer and educator based in New York. She is design director and co-founder of New Affiliates, a firm dedicated to experimenting with known forms, techniques and materials in new ways to create work that is both textured and layered, typical and novel. There, she is currently working on projects in the United States and Greece, including a winter cabin, a hotel façade renovation, and a cliffside viewing platform, alongside research-driven installations. Her ongoing research focuses on embracing imperfection both in form and representation, and constructing new aesthetic lineages of known typologies. Most recently she is investigating the history of the oft-neglected reflecting ceiling plan.

Ivi holds a Master in Architecture from Princeton University, where she was awarded the Suzanne Kolarik Underwood Prize for excellence in design, as well as a Stanley J Seeger fellowship; and a Diploma with honors in Architecture and Engineering from the University of Patras in Greece. Her professional experience prior to New Affiliates includes work in the offices of MOS Architects and Studio Link-Arc in New York, and ACRM in Athens. Ivi’s design work has been featured in several international exhibitions, most recently at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale, and published widely.
