Georgia Bizios brings over thirty years of experience to architectural design and planning projects. She founded Bizios Architect in 1990 and has continued a distinguished academic career. Georgia’s passion for design and education culminates in Bizios Architect’s approach to practice, which utilizes a highly participatory process combining discussion, research, analysis and specially developed tools that elicit in-depth knowledge and awareness of client and project specific needs. She believes the best designs create enduring value for building occupants, owners, users and their communities.
As a professor of architecture at the College of Design at NC State University since 1986, her design, teaching and research interests include site, sustainability, user involvement and theories of place- making. She holds a master of architecture from the University of Oregon, a bachelor of architecture from the University of Minnesota, and a bachelor of arts from Colby College. She has served as an associate dean at both Tulane and NC State. She is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and a Distinguished Professor of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture.
In 2004, Professor Bizios established the Home Environments Design Initiative (HEDI) at NC State’s College of Design. Its mission is to initiate, facilitate and coordinate scholarship, research and outreach services in the area of quality design for home environments. Since that time HEDI has partnered with many affordable housing providers in North Carolina and has received several awards for service to our communities.
