Kyriakos Krokos was born in 1941 in Samos. He graduated from the School of Architecture of the National Technical University of Athens in 1967. In parallel with his studies, in the period 1964-69, he worked in the architectural office of Professor Giannis Liapis. He then traveled to Paris, where he stayed for a year, as a student of Giannis Tsarouchis who then lived there. Krokos considered that painting enriches his architectural education, so with his return to Greece he continued to paint and strengthened his relations with personalities of the intellectual life of the place, mainly in the fields of painting and literature. In 1976 he acquired his own workshop and began to successfully participate in architectural competitions and undertake private projects. In 1977 he won the first prize in the competition for the Museum of Byzantine Culture in Thessaloniki, while in 1990 his proposal in the international competition for the Acropolis Museum was awarded a commendation. In 1996 he represented Greece at the 6th International Biennale of Architecture in Venice.
