George Papadopoulos was born and raised in the city of Limassol in Cyprus. Some of his favourite childhood memories include the indoor yard of his family home, sitting under the hanging vineyard and spending summertime with this grandparents in Saittas village.
At the early age of 7, he created his own puppet show with his 5-year-old cousin and that’s when the first signs of his artistic nature came to the surface. He was responsible for creating the design of the set while his cousin was writing the scripts.
His biggest influences in life were his father teaching him handcrafts and his grandfather who was a captain travelling around the world and sharing interesting stories with his grandson.
In his teenage years, around 15 years old, he took his first professional project. Nadia Lambrou trusted George to create the set for her ballet school show. Her brother, Lambros Lambrou has been one of George’s biggest supporters, giving him the opportunity to take on projects from Cyprus, all the way to Canada.
George Papadopoulos completed his bachelor’s degree in Architecture at UCL (University College London) and continued his studies to become a RIBA Chartered member. Hard work and dedication lead him to open his own office in London, where he spent 14 years in total.
At the same time, George got married and created a big, loving family including four sons and one daughter.
If you ask him “What is the most innovative creation of yours as an architect?” he will most definitely reply “My house and my office.”
During the last few years, George decided the reduce his working hours as an architect and put some more focus on the artistic side of his, by being more creative.
His portfolio includes theatrical plays, Junior Eurovision (2008), museums, interactive exhibitions, to name a few.
His biggest desire in life to live long enough, to be able to achieve all his dreams in life.
