Stella A. Papadopoulos is a visiting assistant professor at the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture in South Bend, Indiana. For the 2011-12 academic year, she is teaching design studio and advanced drawing and painting at their Rome Studies Program. The Yale School of Architecture graduate is a veteran of several New York and London firms.
Papadopoulos is known for her high-end residential designs. As a senior associate and project architect/designer, she worked extensively on residences in the Hamptons as well as hospitality projects in California and New York. She has worked on designing interiors for upscale retail stores like Takashimaya’s former New York flagship on Fifth Avenue, in addition to other boutiques and retail environments.
Her international projects include the Grove Quadrangle at Magdalen College in Oxford, England, with Porphyrios and Associates in London. While working at John Simpson & Partners, her projects included the new market hall in Poundbury and the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace.
Her work has been featured in numerous books, periodicals and magazines, including most recently Architect Magazine, World of Interiors, Interior Design, Elle Décor, and A&C International.
As an active Greek American, she is a member and supports several Greek organizations and foundations. In Greece itself, Papadopoulos worked on the Leventis Residence on the Greek island of Spetses, and the design of the architecture and town planning of Pitiousa, Spetses. She is currently redesigning a public church square and villa in a small village in the Peloponnese.
Papadopoulos volunteers for Habitat for Humanity and Architecture for Humanity and runs Poleis Design Architecture, a multi-disciplinary design studio. She is currently researching Greek Neoclassical Architecture and is writing “Classical Design as Thinking.” Papadopoulos is always infusing young architect’s minds with traditional and classical architecture and researching sustainable architecture/urbanism. She hopes to create a more sustainable and beautiful world through the recovery of the traditional practice of architecture.
