Anthony Fitheoglou is a research-led practitioner who sees value in traditional working methods. Surveying details enable him to understand both the tectonic and material qualities of buildings to inform his designs, shown through working models and measured drawings.
His early education played a vital role in the influences and references he uses within his proposals. Lectures in History of Art allowed him to gain a broader appreciation for the arts, approaching briefs with sensitivity and consideration. A defining point in his education was his post-graduate studies at the Kingston School of Art. Anthony joined Unit 6, the only design unit teaching the principles and application of the classical language in the UK. This assisted his awareness of the built environment, to not only see buildings but to read them.
Anthony’s professional development is an amalgamation of learning and travelling. He regularly spends time in-between academia and professional practice to explore new cities, both for its culture, as well as its architecture. In 2019, Anthony attended the Engelsberg Summer School in Classical Architecture, taught by leading practitioners and academics of modern classical architecture.
Graduating with distinction from the Kingston School of Art, his final year thesis the Chambers of Commerce – A New Modern Classical Building for the City of Glasgow was nominated for the RIBA President’s Silver Medal 2020. The project received growing interest as well as being shortlisted for the RIBA SWLG Awards and became the winning entry for the Traditional Architecture Group’s Student Design Competition 2020. In addition to his achievements, Anthony has been published internationally within the Classicist.
As a passionate educator, he continues his commitment as a part-time Graduate Teaching Assistant at the Kingston School of Art, assisting on the BA (Hons) Architecture module The Principles of Representing Architecture.
