In the conception and development of its activities, the Fundació Mies van der Rohe aims to generate research and debate about modern and contemporary architecture in a manner that is open to paradigm changes, and particularly in relation to concepts which are fundamental today such as identity, social inclusion and all elements of sustainability.
In recognition of the architectural legacy of Lilly Reich, the artistic partner of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in the conception and execution of the German Pavilion of Barcelona in 1929, relegated to a second place, if not non-existent, in the story and memory of this masterpiece in the history of architecture, the Fundació Mies van der Rohe has established the Lilly Reich Grant for equality in architecture.
The grant promotes the study, dissemination and visibilisation of the contributions in architecture which have been unduly relegated or forgotten, made by professionals who have suffered discrimination due to their personal conditions. The grant also seeks to promote access in the equality of opportunities in architectural practice.
2022 – Third Edition of the Lilly Reich Grant for equality in architecture
We celebrate the 137th anniversary of the birth of designer and architect Lilly Reich with the opening of the 3rd call for the Lilly Reich Grant for Equality in Architecture for Academic Research and the announcement of the proposals that will receive the grant in its modality of senior high school students research projects.
As a novelty of this 3rd edition, it will no longer focus exclusively on the study of the work of Lilly Reich and it is open to any proposal aimed at the study, dissemination and visibility of contributions to architecture that have been unduly relegated and forgotten, made by professionals who have received discriminatory treatment, or who seek to promote access with equal opportunities in the practice of architecture.
