Nasios grew up in Nicosia – Cyprus, where his architectural anima flourished between lines, thresholds and hybrid histories. He studied Architecture at the University of Bath and has completed his education in 2014, at the Bartlett and with distinction.

He has worked for leading design offices – Kengo Kuma Associates in Tokyo, Coop Himmelb(l)au in Vienna, and for Prof. Will Alsop in London who he worked for side by side as a designer and painter. 

His passion for digital tools, fabrication and craft, lead to a position at Based Upon, directing the R&D on projects for a year. His last stop before setting up his studio, was an architecture role at Heatherwick Studio where he furthered his interests on cutting edge technology and fabrication.

Nasios has been actively involved in academia as a guest critic at the Bartlett, AA, and University of Greenwich where he also co-run Alsop’s Unit 1. He was a Visiting Tutor for Media Studies and taught Summer School 2018 at the AA. Currently, he is an undergraduate Design Tutor at the University for the Creative Arts.

Nasios believes that architecture, similar to fishing, should involve travel, long stories, preparation, anticipation and daydreaming.

Building on philosophies ranging from the Stoics to Bruce Lee, Nasios refuses to classify architecture to a style or dogma - instead he visualises a non-crystalised, freeform, water-like process to find freedom through what we do; where technique meets poetry, expression balances precision and vision surpasses history.
With these ever-growing ideals, he founded his studio, as an open collective to fish for ideas and to cook radical tectonics.
