Kostas Kondilis: My dream is to design buildings in Greece

-         It all started from the idea to design a building in Moscow. I have always been a New York architect, I had never built in other cities and all of a sudden I was invited to design a building in Moscow. I started a project, then I was invited for a second one, and a third one. There was the avalanche effect. The people didn’t stop calling me, we started designing in Dubai and in Turkey. I am very happy that I came back in Europe – where I actually started from. Europe was to me a new territory, there we started from scratch, however we are already well known, the clients know we work there and they are looking for us. The secret of my success in Europe is that I know very well the architectural history of Europe and I combine the European architectural tradition with the American techniques which I also know very well. I am very happy from the way things went over there and I can share with you that very soon together with a Greek company we will start on a new project in Bulgaria as well.
