Mr Phevos Kallitsis
I joined University of Portsmouth in November 2014. My previous experience involved teaching in UEL’s franchised programme BA (Hons) Architecture [Greece] and at the National Technical University of Athens at Levels 1 and 4 and in the Post Graduate Programmes. I have worked as a freelance Architect for various projects and with various firms, working in projects in Greece, Cyprus, UAE, Oman and other countries. Projects I took part have been published and I’ve been part of various award winning competition submissions.
Apart from practicing architecture I worked as cinema critic and set designer for theatre productions and tv in Greece. I’ve been in the organization committee for various events exploring the interconnections of Architecture, Urban Design and Cinema.
Based on my MPhil Thesis, my on-going PhD (Fear for the City: Boundaries and Reflections in Horror Films and Thrillers) and various publications which are based on ways of looking into current and recent urban phenomena through moving images and their social, cultural and financial context.
Also I have worked on issues of Gender Cultural Approaches on Urban Space - focusing on raising questions regarding gender and sexuality as part of design strategies.
