Christos Floros in conversation with Alison Steadman OBE

Creating

I’m always excited to pursue new endeavours, tackling new and old challenges.

My relationship with architecture

Studying architecture taught me a few things: have a process, respect the process, accept that you will fail, over and over.

It’s a way of thinking about space, material, volume, people and their interaction, among other things. Designing a spoon, a building, or a city requires the conception of a logic, it requires setting aims and being very critical of yourself and your work along the way as you strive to improving and reimagining the final product.

Using architecture to inform other disciplines

Because of how structured design requires a process to be, not only in terms of work but also in terms of how you present your work – it informs almost everything else I approach. From producing theatre, to creating marketing strategies or engaging communities for a cause.


These are the things I have worked on most recently.
