Pavlina Lucas

Pavlina Lucas (b.1970, Cyprus) is a practicing architect based in Oslo. Her work is rooted in a phenomenological approach and stems from research on the interaction between body/space and natural/manmade. Hands-on exploration through an array of tools, including writing and photographing, is central in her practice.

Lucas studied architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design (M.Arch 2000) after studies in (photo)journalism and art history at Boston University. In 2014 she completed the practice-based PhD project "The Photographic Absolute: An Architectural Beginning" at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design.

She has taught at various schools, including the Accademia di Architettura in Mendrisio, Aarhus School of Architecture, Oslo School of Architecture, and Tromsø Academy of Landscape and Territorial Studies. She is currently Associate Professor at Bergen School of Architecture and at Oslo National Academy of the Arts.
