Théodora Fischkandl

Théodora joined URBED in November 2018 as an Urban Designer and Part-2 Architectural Assistant. Prior to joining URBED, Théodora explored social, political and environmental issues in Paris, working at a large range of scales. At a city scale she developed public policy with Bres Mariolle et Associés, working on a Blue-Green Grid and Environmental Strategy for the City of Nantes. At an architectural scale she worked on several competitions at D+H Architecture Environnement, an organisation specialising in timber construction. She also worked on an experiemental urban agriculture project at Atelier D’Architecture Autogérée, a studio for self managed architecture.

Théodora graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture Paris Lavillette in 2016 with a Masters of Architecture where she focused on challenges such as environmental and social sustainability. Her final year thesis explored the relationship between the semantic meaning of the word "resilience" and the practical and spatial application of the concept. Her final year project focused on a small post-industrial town with a key geological asset called Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, attempting to reshape tourism around the strength of the areas cultural heritage. She studied at University of Bath through the Erasmus program and finished off her study with an extra semester at the interdisciplinary "Centre Michel Serres" in Paris, which crosses traditional boundaries between academic disciplines.

Outside of her interest in architecture she has a passion for graphic design, didactic methods, and music.
