Evangelia Alverti holds a Diploma in Architecture and Engineering from the School of Architecture of the National Technical University of Athens and an MSc in Sustainable Heritage awarded by UCL. During her studies in architecture, she demonstrated particular interest in the historic environment and the adaptation of contemporary structures to challenging contexts and conducted her thesis project on an abandoned village in Tinos Island, Greece. This project, titled “Monasteria village, Tinos Island. The abandoned village revives as an agro-touristic settlement.” was later published in the e-magazine GreekArchitects.gr (GRA). After graduating, she practiced architecture in the demanding context of Tinos Island in Cyclades, Greece, working both on new construction projects and on traditional buildings in conservation areas of special statutory protection, analysing the existing structures and preparing restoration proposals. She gained scholarship from the A.G. Leventis Foundation to
assist her studies in London, where she took the MSc course in Sustainable Heritage in the Bartlett School of Environment Energy and Resources, UCL. Her dissertation research titled “Urban regeneration in historic contexts. The case of King’s Cross Central.”, investigated the interface between urban design / public space and heritage conservation, focusing on a major ongoing regeneration project in a historic industrial setting in London.
