Amanda Iglesias

2019 Winner


Amanda Iglesias was awarded our 2019 Travel Scholarship. Amanda travelled to Denmark to study the churches by Inger and Johannes Exner (b. 1926), two Danish architects whose work in historical renovation and ecclesiastical architecture places them as outliers of the rehearsed Modernist narrative.

Commenting on being awarded the Travel Scholarship, Amanda said “I am thrilled and grateful to visit the Danish post-war churches of Inger and Johannes Exner, which exemplify an architecture that holds innovation and tradition as co-dependent. The Exner churches—given their explicitly democratic aims and careful consideration of history—merit a timely case study in understanding ecclesiastical architecture’s role in the civic sphere. My hope is to apply the lessons learned from the Exner oeuvre to the contemporary climate, and eventually practice architecture with the same degree of grace and rigor.”
