Lecture: Liza Fior, muf

March 14, 2012 at 6:00 pm

Liza Fior was born in London where she continues to practice as founding partner of muf architecture/art. The work of the practise negotiates between the built and social fabric, public and private in projects that have mainly been focused in East London but not exclusively so. Projects range from urban design schemes to small-scale temporary interventions, landscapes and buildings – a continual dialogue between detail and strategy. The approach, value what’s there, nurture the possible and define what’s missing demonstrated in the project Making Space in Dalston is being further developed in a series of projects working around the fringe of London’s Olympic site. muf were the authors of the British Pavilion in Venice at the Architecture Biennale 2010 which made the pavilion a platform for local concerns a piece of work which continues. Awards for muf projects include the 2008 European Prize for Public Space (a first for the UK) for a new ‘town square’ for Barking, East London and Landscape Institutes Presidents Medal 2012 for Making Space in Dalston. Co-author of, “This is What We Do: a muf manual” unsolicited research continues to be entwined into every project.
