KUKAN ARCHITECTS is a team of young architects who seek to create opportunites across the scales of buildings, products and techniques; small to large. The remit of the team is to combine elegant, innovative and economic solutions, to improve the built environment; resourcing both expert technical skills and local tacit knowledge.
Our mission is not to impose solutions but to find them, producing design that is at once practical, beautiful and innovative.
Established in 2010 by Pavlos Sideris, ambitious to develop a design research through undertaking built full-scale projects in challenging situations. The design team combines a wide range of skills from parametric design, computer fluid dynamics, rapid prototyping and 3d-modelling to graphic, illustration and photography. The team resources a background in fabrication that is integrated in its design and thinking process.
