Urban Revitalization. Suburban Retrofit. Greenfield Hamlets and Villages. Multi-modal planning. "Before-and-After."  These are a few of our favorite things.    

Born in Miami Beach and raised in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Andrew Georgiadis graduated with a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Architecture from the University of Miami in 2000 and 2001. He interned with Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council, training under Marcela Camblor.  

Then, in 2001, he joined Dover Kohl & Partners, where he spent 11 happy years learning from Victor Dover and Joe Kohl. They, along with Elizabeth Plater Zyberk and Andres Duany and others, established the Congress for the New Urbanism.  

These thought leaders began to reverse suburban sprawl through their work and have since created influential projects that have energized cities, towns, and villages around the world. 
After leaving Dover Kohl & Partners, Andrew taught as full time faculty at the School of Architecture from which he graduated, under Dean Elizabeth Plater Zyberk. Then, he joined the Urban Design Studio in Sarasota for two and a half years to co-author the citywide form based code, and update the Duany Plater Zyberk form-based code for Downtown, before starting his own practice: Georgiadis Urban Design.
