Kyveli Anastasiadi is an architect and performer, incorporating Physical Thinking as a tool for designing and making. Design Through Performance merges the world of architecture with the world of performance and cognitive science, challenging existing architectural typologies while rediscovering architecture as an embodied ‘process’ of making a design.
