Andreas Theodoridis is a practicing architect-engineer and environmental technologist with a Ph.D. from the Center for Architecture Science and Ecology (CASE), a research center of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute / RPI based in NYC, and a research collaborator at the Center for Architecture Ecosystems (CEA) at Yale University. He holds a Diploma in Architecture and Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece and an MS in Sustainable Environmental Systems from Pratt Institute, where he has been awarded the Green Infrastructure Fellowship and an Award for Outstanding Merit. Theodoridis is the founder of United Atmospheres, an experimental design practice and consultancy based between New York and Athens.

His research is interdisciplinary, merging twenty-five years of experience in building construction and fabrication with applied research on building systems and environmental initiatives on an urban scale. His current work focuses on hybrid air phytoremediative modular ceramic systems for building envelopes, relative to questions of environmental inequality.

He also lectured at Syracuse Center for Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems and served as a visiting researcher at the Cooper Union Institute for Sustainable Design. He is the recipient of awards and distinctions including the Humanities Graduate Fellowship at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, an Honorable Mention at the Architect’s Newspaper Design Awards, the One Prize annual design and science award, as well as an Honorable mention on the d3 Unbuilt Architectural Visions international competition.
