She was also one of the key people who orchestrated in November 2009 the exhibition "Architecture Act-In" which was Pieris Architects first monographic exhibition.

Colin Fournier, professor of Architecture and Urbanism in UCL referring to the exhibition wrote: "It is a fascinating how two young architects are achieving a radical mutation in the practice of architecture. They go far beyond the usual limitations of architectural discourse; their projects are playful, witty and very sensual. They are poetic and they have style. This work has international significance and is a very positive symptom of a paradigmatic shift in professional practice."
