City Index Lab was founded in Athens Greece in 2006 by Elena Antonopoulou, Olga Linardou, Eftychia Papathanasiou, Foteini Setaki and Tina Tzoka. The team is engaged in activities in the fields of architecture, city and new technologies. It has organized numerous exhibitions, lectures and workshops, while its work has been exhibited amongst others at the 6th Biennale for young architects of Athens, the National Museum of Contemporary Art, and soon at the International Architecture Biennale 2014 in Rotterdam. CITY INDEX LAB members are professionally active both as members of the team and as individual researchers and professionals, bringing their individual knowledge and experience to the common ground.

Elena Antonopoulouis an Athens based architect and researcher. After receiving her Masters from the School of Architecture, NTUA, she followed the interdisciplinary postgraduate programme: Design, Space, Culture at the same school.
