Common Accounts

Founded by Igor Bragado and Miles Gertler at Princeton University in 2015, Common Accounts is a design practice which operates between Seoul, Toronto, and New York. Their work “Closer Each Day: The Architecture of Everyday Death” and “Going Fluid: The Cosmetic Protocols of Gangnam” were exhibited at the Seoul International Biennale for Architecture and Urbanism 2017 and the Third Istanbul Design Biennial in 2016 respectively. Bragado and Gertler have lectured in Beijing, Toronto, Istanbul, Seoul, Cornell and Columbia University, and recent work has appeared at the A+D Museum in Los Angeles, in Uncube Magazine, Cuarto: Architecture Playground, Artsy, and Dezeen. Their work has recently been acquired by the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Korea. Gertler has mounted three solo shows of visual media with Toronto’s Corkin Gallery and has taught at the University of Toronto and University of Waterloo. Bragado is a contributing critic to El Pais, is adjunct faculty at the Cooper Union Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture, and he was awarded the 2017 writing prize by the Design History Society.
