Zenovia Toloudi, D.Des, is architect, artist, and Assistant Professor of Architecture at Studio Art, Dartmouth College. Her work critiques the contemporary alienation of humans from nature and sociability in architecture and in public space, and investigates spatial typologies to reestablish cohabitation, inclusion and participation through digital, physical, and organic media. The founder of Studio Z, a creative research practice on art, architecture and urbanism, Zenovia has exhibited internationally, including at the Biennale in Venice,  Le Lieu Unique in Nantes, France, the Center for Architecture, the Athens Byzantine Museum, the Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art and the Onassis Cultural Center. She has won commissions from Illuminus Boston, and The Lab at Harvard. Zenovia's work belongs to permanent collections at Aristotle University (AUTh), and the Thracian Pinacotheca.
