Shemaine Bushnell Kyriakides
As architect, engineer, and professor, Theoni Xanthi wears many hats. But it is her love of architecture that won her the first prize in the International Architectural Competition for her design of the New Cyprus Museum, or better known as the highly anticipated archeological museum of Cyprus.
Ms. Xanthi is scheduled to speak at the Digital Agenda Cyprus on the 19th of October and will share her extensive experience in design and connectivity and how new cities are being built today with these elements in mind.
In 1989, Theoni Xanthi together with Gerasimos Zakynthinos and Thodoris Androulakis, founded their architectural office in Athens, dealing mainly with large-scale public as well as private projects.
In 2008, the office was officially named XZA-Architects and has, so far, received a total of 31 awards and distinctions for architectural studies, either in competitions or for build projects.
In 2005 the project 'Starting Area of the Classical Marathon Race' won the "Dimitris Pikionis Award for Public Open Space and Landscape Architecture". Moreover, in 2007 it was selected as the official Greek representative in the Mies van der Rohe international architectural competition.
Since 2012, Theoni Xanthi has been active in Cyprus as a lead architect, winning several distinctions in architectural competitions.
