Liza Fior (MUF architecture/art)


Liza Fior was born in London where she continues to practice as founding partner of muf architecture/art. The work of the practice negotiates between the built and social fabric, public and private in projects that have mainly been focused in East London. But not exclusively so, as muf has also developed urban strategies for Pittsburgh, Cologne and Bordeaux. Projects range from urban design schemes to small-scale temporary interventions, landscapes and buildings—a continual dialogue between detail and strategy.
Muf were the creative directors of the British Pavilion in Venice this year.
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. Co-author of “This is What We Do: a muf manual”, research continues to be entwined into every project. Fior is currently a visiting professor at Yale where her studio is exploring an alternative legacy for London’s Olympic site.
