Art Is Everywhere | Galia Solomonoff

This week we'll be talking with Galia Solomonoff, founder and creative director of SAS/Solomona Architecture Studio, in New York City. We will be speaking to her about the Philadelphia Art Alliance, which Galia completed in collaboration with JacobsWyper Architects in 2019. This project preserved and re-imagined a dilapidated building in the heart of Philadelphia and owned by the University of the Arts. Currently, it is a gathering spot for artists to share ideas and redefine the city’s urban landscape. 

It is a profound misconception of our profession that the designs which are often most celebrated are the ones that are the most expensive. Galia shares her opinion on this topic and discloses how art can be made accessible to anyone, regardless of net worth. We will also learn more about the foundations of Galia’s architectural journey and explore how she has incorporated this theme of accessibility into her work.
