Igor BragadoさんとMiles Gertlerさんについて

Common Accounts is a design group led by Igor Bragado and Miles Gertler in Madrid and Toronto. Together they explore spatial situations where design intelligence is abundant but under the radar. Their work documents and intervenes in live conditions, often looking five seconds into the future.
They are known for their work on the design of death, including Three Ordinary Funerals: A Home for the Virtual Afterlife, shown at the Seoul International Biennial on Architecture and Urbanism and The Cube Design, Museum, and now a part of the permanent collection of the MMCA, Korea. Other large-scale installations and built work include the cabin Don’t Let Me Be Lonely, the funerary fitness catafalque Refresh, Renew, exhibited at Azkuna Zentroa and commissioned by the Spanish Academy in Rome, and Going Fluid: The Cosmetic Protocols of Gangnam, first shown at the Istanbul Design Biennial, and later re-commissioned by the Seoul Museum of Art. They are the editors of Planet Fitness and have written essays, trend forecasts, and reviews for the likes of 032c, Pin-Up, and The Avery Review. Recent exhibitions include GTA21 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Toronto, A Section of Now at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal, and Working Remotely with a83 in New York. Their work has been featured in publications like Perspecta, Frame, Dezeen, The Globe and Mail, Neo2, Arquitectura Viva, and Icon Design.
Bragado and Gertler both received their Masters of Architecture from Princeton University School of Architecture where they were awarded the Suzanne Kolarik Underwood Prize for their work, Closer Each Day: the Architecture of Everyday Death.
