Fundació Mies van der Rohe and Ajuntament de Barcelona have announced online that the 2nd Lilly Reich Grant for Equality in Architecture has been awarded to the research proposal: “[On Set with] Lilly Reich” by Valencian architects Laura Lizondo Sevilla, Débora Domingo Calabuig, and Avelina Prat García. The granted project was selected by an international jury, composed of three professionals linked to the fields of research and dissemination in architecture and the research and dissemination in the matter of equality. The Grant that bears the name of the pioneer in the fields of design and architecture Lilly Reich in recognition of her legacy has gathered for its second edition, 17 research projects from Germany, Chile, Mexico, The Netherlands, Argentina, Italy, and Spain. The winning project “[On Set with] Lilly Reich”, was chosen for numerous reasons. In fact, according to Zaida Muxí, one of the members of the jury “the selected proposal has three assets that have made it worthy of the award, the first one is the collective proposal that combines abilities, the second one is the suggested exhibition dissemination format, which is a documentary and the third one is contrasting the contributions of Lilly Reich to what has been said about her, that is, the proposal of a dialogue between facts and historiography”.
