“I was interested to use materials that are very familiar in older Greek residential interiors such as terrazzo floors, which are present throughout the house inside and outside, as well as marble and plaster render, but using them in spaces, forms and combinations that are not so familiar.”

Lydia Xynogala Architect


The architectural practice of Lydia Xynogala explores relations between sites, material properties and cultural narratives at various scales. They are articulated in experiments, constructions and writings. Built and conceptual projects seek to unveil connections and contradictions between natural and artificial realms.

She holds a Masters degree from Princeton University where she received a Stanley Seeger Fellowship, a BArch from the Cooper Union where she was awarded the Irma Weiss Prize for exceptional creative potential, the George Leslie Design Prize and the Humanities Prize, and a BSc from the Bartlett, UCL.

In 2016 Xynogala was awarded a Fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts. She has presented her work at the MoMA, Van Alen Institute, RH Gallery, Society of Architectural Historians, Chemical Heritage Foundation and History of Science Society. She has exhibited her work in New York, Valencia, Seoul and Shanghai. Her book The Dark Ecology of Magnitogorsk was published in 2013 by Princeton University. Other select publications are included in Kerb Journal, Pidgin, Eoculus, Wallpaper and Loftlife.
