Konstantin Ikonomidis. Konstantin Arkitekter

Konstantin Ikonomidis is a Swedish architect and the founder of Konstantin Arkitekter. He graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Copenhagen in 2014. His work bridges the territories of art, architecture, and scientific research, with a special interest in extreme climates.

He has a background working in the field of architectural research and has played a key role in the development of prototype houses that seek to prevent thetransmission of malaria in Sub-Saharan Africa. His background in the field has led to his interest in establishing an architectural and creative studio that challenges today’s building methods by collaborating with specialists in a range of disciplines and highlights the need for academic research to drive innovation in architecture.

Intertwined with his built work, Konstantin has led research projects and has lectured internationally in Sweden, Denmark, Tanzania and Greenland. His recently completed project The Qaammat Pavilion, a landmark for the newly announced UNESCO World Heritage in West Greenland, has been awarded by the A+Awards and published widely. He is currently stationed in Tanzania, where he is involved in establishing a bamboo production facility to promote bamboo as a construction material to the local market.
