As an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia GSAPP, she teaches design studio and seminars in the Architecture Program.

Her presentations took place at the University of Granada, Spain, and at the Center for Architecture in New York.
Dimitra played a key role in designing and coordinating the launch of the exhibition “Steven Holl: Making Architecture,” which toured globally from 2018 to 2023. Additionally, she serves on the board of directors of the Steven Myron Holl Foundation, providing guidance to the non-profit organization at the intersection of art, architecture, music, poetry, and ecology.
