Aspassia Kouzoupi PhD, is an architect, a MAS_LA, ETH.Z urban-scale landscape architect and a visual artist.

They are the founding members of the team SCULPTED ARCHITECTURAL LANDSACPES®. They have been designing and creating landscapes entities along major motorway axes, since 1999, in efficient collaboration with the construction engineers and teams, in the framework of their following projects:

1] Attiki Odos JV, Ymittos Ring, Athens, Greece: “Landscapes between Motorway and Nature

Between 2000-2003 and 2003-2005, they created a series of landscapes along the Western Mt Ymittos Ring, along 4km of the mountain cut. This project was selected as a Finalist for the 2004 European Prize for Urban Public Space, in Barcelona. The Prize is annually organized by: CCCB-Barcelona, AzW-Wien, CAP-Paris, NAI-Rotterdam, AF-London, MFA-Helsinki. This project is archived and exhibited at the European Archive of Urban Public Space.

2] MOREAS JV, Ancient Cleonae Area, Korinthos Prefecture, Greece: “Focus in Motion of the Ancient Quarries of Cleonae

Between 2009 and 2011, they elaborated a thorough research of the ancient quarrying complex of Cleonae, and its visibility from the new motorway, and created a design that aims establishing a dialogue between modern and ancient infrastructure. This project has partially been completed, yet it has been published in international Journals [Germany: Topos: the review of landscape and urban design, Italy: Paysage-Topscape] and has been presented successfully in the 5th International Landscape Archaeology Congress, organized in 2018 by the Universities of Newcastle and Durham. It also acquired honorable mention at the 2013 DOMES architectural awards, by an international renowned jury [Prof. Kenneth Frampton, Prof. Alberto Ferlenga, and Prof. Inaki Abalos].
