Faidra Oikonomopoulou (TU Delft)
Dr. ir. Faidra Oikonomopoulou is an Assistant Professor at the Structural Design & Mechanics Group in the Faculty of Architecture at TU Delft. Her research focuses on structural glass and particularly on innovative structural applications of cast glass components and assemblies and on the design of full-glass load-bearing structures and components. She has been involved in the Research & Development of several realized cast glass structures, such as the Crystal Houses in Amsterdam, the LightVault in UK and the Qaammat Pavilion in Greenland. Currently, Faidra is focusing on the development of recycled cast glass components made of glass waste; and on the use of topological optimization for mass-optimized massive structural glass components of reduced annealing time.
