Presentation of the second edition of the Lilly Reich Grant for equality in architecture

Coinciding with the 135th anniversary of the birth of Lilly Reich we present you the second call for the Lilly Reich Grant for Equality in Architecture now that you can see the result of the research granted in the first edition Re-enactment: Lilly Reich’s work occupies the Barcelona Pavilion at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, and a video piece where the dancer Toni Mira shows it to us in a danced route.

Lilly Reich shared with Ludwig Mies van der Rohe the conception and execution of the German Pavilion of Barcelona in 1929 but she was relegated in the storytelling of the history of architecture. The results of the first edition of the grant have demonstrated the need to continue to deepen, from academic research, in the knowledge and dissemination of Lilly Reich’s own contributions as an essential figure in the history of design and modern architecture.

The novelty of this second edition is that we expand the scope of the grant by incorporating a specific call for senior high school students that aims to encourage them to carry out curricular research projects focused on reverting the invisibilizations in architecture, both from a historical and a contemporary point of view. The proposals granted will be co-tutored by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe and will be able to access to the Archive of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award  and the Historic Archive and Collection of the Fundació Mies van der Rohe.

Here you have the rules. We look forward to seeing your proposal!
