Anastasia Mylona was born and raised in Thessaloniki, where she studied architecture at the Aristotelian University. She then made two important decisions: to explore the world and architecture (she lived five months in Italy as an Erasmus student), and try and make, in her own way, the world better. After her degree she specialised in bioclimatic design, at the Welsh school of Architecture, Cardiff. After completing her thesis, she was assigned a new project in the Environmental Change Institute at Oxford University, where for two years, she studied the effects of climate on buildings. Αlongside her research at Oxford she is working as a technical consultant at CIBSE (Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers) in London researching the dangers that climate change poses to urban settlements and the ways to tackle them. For a while she lived in Indonesia where she had the opportunity to study how third world countries try to come up against increasingly adverse climatic conditions. In her spare time she travels or makes plans for travelling.
