The RAIC EP Committee is pleased to announce the appointment of Fotini Pitoglou as the vice-chair.
Fotini Pitoglou is a licensed architect in the UK and Greece and is currently working her way to licensure in Toronto, ON. She is a designer with KPMB Architects and has a broad work experience ranging from high-profile institutional to high-rise residential projects. She holds master's degrees from the University of Waterloo and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, where she conducted extensive research on waterfront design, and community building. Her work has been published on various websites in the architecture industry and presented at the Changing Cities conference.
Additionally, Fotini is actively involved within the architectural community through various organizations, including Building Equality in Architecture, Toronto (BEAT) and Lawrence Heights Arts Centre, as well as through mentoring students and young architects. Most recently, she has been developing a non-profit organization that focuses on empowering vulnerable communities impacted by tourism.
As the incoming vice-chair of the RAIC EP Committee, I am determined to create an open and inspiring community of young practitioners and encourage minorities to complete their licensing and stay in the profession. Furthermore, I aim to promote and educate the new era of architects on sustainable design and be part of RAIC EP continuing education programs.
