Amanda Iglesias came across the work of Inger and Johannes Exner, which is almost unknown outside Denmark, while studying architecture as a graduate at the University of Cambridge. She became fascinated by the work of this husbandand- wife team, particularly the 13 churches. In 2019, Amanda was awarded the ADAM Architecture Travel Scholarship, which allowed her to travel throughout Denmark for a full month to study, document and learn from these special churches, and even meet Inger herself. The experience has been formative in sharpening her design instincts, historical knowledge, and fluency with mid-century architectural forms.
Amanda is currently working for Robert A.M. Stern Architects in New York City, where she now applies these skills in both design and research.
