Tzoulia (Julia) Baltsavia


Tzoulia graduated from Cardiff University with First Class Honors in BSc Architecture (ARB/RIBA Part I). The technically-focused academic environment enhanced the tectonic conception of her work through digital analysis, while it stimulated her interest in urbanism and social aspects of design. In Year 2, she was selected to participate in a joint design workshop with Tianjin University in China to design an art pavilion. In her two years out, Tzoulia worked at DSDHA in London, where she got involved in a range of projects and international competitions, such as the Guggenheim Museum, Helsinki and the regeneration of the San Francisco Ruins, Dominican Republic. In 2017, Tzoulia graduated with Distinction in MArch Architecture (ARB / RIBA Part 2) from the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. Her final project, which was published in several magazines and exhibitions, including Dezeen, questioned contemporary modes of production and studied digitally-fabricated construction systems for the development of social housing prototypes. Tzoulia currently works at HawkinsBrown in London, while attending the Advanced Diploma in Architectural Practice in Architecture (ARB/RIBA Part 3) at University of Westminster.
