Luftwerk and Iker Gil receive a Graham Foundation grant
Iker Gil, Petra Bachmaier, and Sean Gallero have been awarded a 2019 Graham Foundation grant to support the project Geometry of Light.
“The Graham Foundation has announced the award of over $460,000 for 63 new grants to individuals worldwide that support projects on architecture. Grantee projects represent diverse lines of inquiry engaging original ideas that advance our understanding of the designed environment. Selected from over 500 proposals, the funded projects include exhibitions, publications, films, and performances that promote rigorous scholarship, stimulate experimentation, and foster critical discourse in architecture. The individuals leading these projects are based in cities such as Ahmedabad, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Cairo, London, Milan, Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago, where the Graham Foundation is based. The innovative projects are led by eminent and emerging architects, artists, curators, filmmakers, historians, and photographers, among other professionals. The new grantees join a worldwide network of individuals and organizations represented by over 4,500 grants that the Graham Foundation has supported over the past 63 years.”
Geometry of Light was presented at the Barcelona Pavilion in February 2019 and will be installed at the Farnsworth House in October 2019. In Barcelona, the project was co-organized by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe and MAS Context.
