Aimilios (Emil) graduated with a Master's of Architecture II from Harvard's Graduate School of Design in 2019 and with a Bachelor's of Architecture from the Cooper Union in 2017. He is the recipient of the James Templeton Kelley Prize for the best final design thesis project, a stress ribbon footbridge conceived as a mechanical instrument that amplifies the river's current forces to pull itself taut, situated in Washington DC.
Merging design with his ever-evolving passion for hands-on fabrication and production engineering, he has been building his own machine shop/woodshop equipped with models, widgets, instruments, as well as manual and CNC machine tools. Outside the academic environment, Emil has worked on various projects, ranging from making architectural models for MoMa's 2018 exhibit "Towards Concrete Utopia", to calibrating equipment used to mass-produce swabs for COVID-19 tests.
