Philip Christou is an architect, artist and architectural educator, born in Alberta, Western Canada. He was educated at McGill University, Montreal, before studying Fine Art at the University of Lethbridge and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax. Philip then moved to London where he studied at the Architectural Association. 

For a number of years, Philip worked alongside Florian Beigel in the Architecture Research Unit (ARU), London Metropolitan University. Since its inception in 1974, the ARU acted as a design laboratory for design-based research, conducting building studies across a variety of scales, and mediums. This practice was seen as a methodology for producing innovative responses to architecture, interiors and urban design. Conceived as a single function, thinking and doing were amalgamated through a synthesis of drawing, making and building. As the ARU, Florian and Philip designed several buildings.

Founded in 2018 by Ana Isabel Santos, João Tavares, João Varela and Paulo Dias, Mesa Atelier is the result of intensive research and experiments. It began in academia and developed into several projects that were presented in a wide variety of national and international architecture competitions.
The approach to each project is expressed in the recognition of the territory, its values and the elements that characterize it. This methodology makes it possible to assign unique characteristics of valorization and understanding of the constructed and biophysical elements to each intervention. 

Every project is unique. The use of local raw materials, the study of folk architecture building techniques, the conservation of resources and the values ​​present in any building or surrounding landscape are the guide for most of their approaches and interventions.

The Landscape Studio is a small award winning Landscape architecture and design firm based between East Africa and Spain, founded and run by Chloe and Michael Humphreys.

The studio has already created solutions for a diverse portfolio of projects around East Africa and Europe with a focus on being gentle and sensitive within the landscape.
The aim is to achieve a restored balance with design solutions where the spaces in which we interact with our natural environment are mutually beneficial for the ecosystem and the people that inhabit it, and to explore the creation of new paradigms for these spaces, where urban, rural and natural can co-exist in a healthy balance. 

Key to achieving these goals are their focus to improve biodiversity and the ecology on their sites and to investigate sustainable and locally sourced hardscape and planting solutions. They both love to explore the use of materials within their projects always fully researching local and culturally significant solutions. As a result, observation of the existing conditions and understanding the context are fundamental to their approach.

Their practice comes with an acute sense of responsibility. They aim to produce fair and sustainable solutions that can stand the intensity of change in our times, whilst providing liveable spaces that can age with beauty and dignity.

ADS5 is a Postgraduate Master Course at The Royal College of Art in London. Together with their students, the three tutors, Chirstopher Dyvik, Max Kahlen and Isabel Pietri, explore an architecture that transcends function and removes the comfort of the predefined space. This architecture is not multifunctional, but about a presence with the ability for different readings. It is about ambiguity.

Christopher Dyvik is a Norwegian architect and founding director of Dyvik Kahlen Architects, established in 2010. He studied at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, London, where he has also taught various workshops and Media Study courses from 2012 to 2014.

Max Kahlen is also a founding director of Dyvik Kahlen Architects. He studied at Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design and then at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, London, where he graduated with honours in 2008. In parallel to practicing architecture, Max was a tutor at the Architectural Association from 2009 to 2015, running design units in the first year, diploma school and media studies, and now leads ADS5 at the RCA.

Isabel Pietri has been a key collaborator with Dyvik Kahlen Architects, leading their UK projects since 2015. Isabel graduated from the Architectural Association in London, receiving a RIBA Silver Medal Commendation and the Paul Davis + Partners award. She has worked with Rijke Marsh Morgan and Foster + Partners in London, and Barkow Leibinger, Berlin.

Alexander Fthenakis is as a Munich based architect working in the fields of architectural design and construction, research and teaching since 2007. After studying at TU Munich and ETSA Madrid, he worked with Peter Zumthor and Roger Boltshauser. Between 2007 and 2012 he taught architectural design and patrimony as an assistant with Victor López Cotelo at TUM. The focus of his practice lies in the field of contextual architecture and building transformation. In parallel, he devotes himself to architectural research and documentation as an author, among other things. In 2020-21, while a guest professor at TUM, he founded the Inhabitable Structures Studio, investigating adaptable structures for contemporary urban forms of living.
