Danae Polyviou is a structural engineer with over 6 years work experience.
She has studied Civil & Architectural Engineering at the University
of Bath where she developed a passion for lightweight structures that
led her in Germany for a master on Membrane Structures. She has worked
in Stuttgart for Knippers Helbig Advanced Engineering and in Berlin for
HENN Architects as a researcher before moving in London to work for
Atelier One and most recently for AKT II.
She is currently teaching at the Technical Studies of the AA and she is a Design Tutor at the Design for
Manufacture Master programme at Here East and the Technical Tutor of Unit 1 at the Bartlett. Her personal interest lies within the notion of
lightweight structures and geometry optimization.
In her spare time, she is studying Sculpture at Morley College lead by the freedom it gives her to apply structural intuition into forms and material properties. Danae has extensive experience in working with complex geometries and computational tools for efficient and optimised structures and material systems.
