Nelly Sfakianaki was born in Athens. She studied Architecture in Greece and England. She runs an architectural practice in Athens that mainly focuses on designing houses and business premises. In the meantime, she began a multidimensional search in Architecture, and in this context, she supported the organisation of the exhibition “Imagine the City Aegina 2013”, an experience that provided citizens with the opportunity to change their passive approach towards the city, to an active level through the creative process. Until now, she has participated in various social contribution groups, participatory planning, and creative workshops as the pivotal point that leads citizens to take action and achieve self-awareness towards the city and the society.
