Ilze Wolff

Ilze Wolff co-directs Wolff Architects with Heinrich Wolff, a practice concerned with an architecture of consequence. In 2017 she received an International Prize for Scholarly Works in Modern and Contemporary Art and Architecture in Rome, for her book Unstitching Rex Trueform, the story of an African factory. In 2018 she was shortlisted for the Architectural Review’s Moira Gemmil award and between 2017-2019 she was a fellow at the University of the Western Cape’s, Centre for Humanities Research. 

Wolff co-founded Pumflet a publication for art and architecture, which has since received institutional support from William Kentridge's Centre for the less good idea, the Chicago Architecture Biennial and formed part of the publishing against the grain exhibition at the Zeitz Mocaa Museum. Through the practice and with her colleagues at Wolff, their space in Bo-Kaap has hosted exhibitions, interventions, publications and talks in collaboration with artists, activists and scholars and in that way developing an enduring public culture around the city, space and personhood.
