Emmanouil Vermisso joined the faculty of Architecture in 2008. A registered architect in Greece, prior to coming to FAU, he practiced architecture in London, at the firms of Foster+Partners, AHMM and Porphyrios Associates, where he worked on residential and mixed-use projects. He holds a Diploma in Architecture from the University of Westminster (London) and a post-professional Master of Architecture from Syracuse University (NY), where he conducted research on the implications of examining Classical Architecture within a digital framework. His interest within design lies at the intersection of digital design theory and fabrication, as well as Classical architectural theory and Architectural Organicism. His research focuses on the evolving use of Nature as a design strategy and the Biological analogy in architecture from a performance and pedagogical perspective. He is increasingly interested in the collaborative efforts between design-related fields such as Architecture and Engineering, to enhance the understanding of space and form through performance analysis. He currently teaches Architectural Design and seminars on Digital Documentation, Digital Fabrication and Biomorphic Design, combining CNC manufacturing techniques to produce kinetic prototypes. His work has been presented in several national and international conferences including ACADIA, SiGRADi and eCAADe.
