Teresa Tourvas completed her studies in Architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with an emphasis in New Technologies in the design process and Bachelors at Nottingham Trent University. A recurring theme in her research has been the correlation of Collective Culture and Public space. As a practicing architect and adjunct lecturer, she has been researching the notion of collaboration in urban dynamics, the development of collective conscience, and citizenship. Some of the research projects she has been involved in include, public space and Conflict resolution in Nicosia and Beirut, Community Participation and public space in Italy, Japan, and Bhutan, models for Collaborative Design (Lisbon), and Social and Environmental Sustainability (Cyprus, Spain and Lebanon). Since 2009, she has been teaching Design and Design Methodology at University of Cyprus, Frederick University and University of Nicosia. This has given her the opportunity to mentor a number of design studios, workshops and thesis projects. As a practicing Architect she has worked in Paris, Boston and Cyprus. Since 2004 she runs her own practice in Nicosia.
