Thread, the artists’ residency and cultural center established by The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation and Le Korsa in Sinthian, has won the 2016 PLAN AWARD in the category of Culture. The award, which is offered annually by THE PLAN, an internationally recognized architecture magazine, is designed “to disseminate knowledge of and improve the quality of the work done by designers, academics, critics and students in the architecture, design and city planning fields, thereby promoting debate on topical design and planning themes.”

Congratulations to Toshiko Mori and Jordan MacTavish of Toshiko Mori Architect, who designed the building. Congratulations, also, to Nick Murphy and Moussa Sene, Thread’s directors, as well as to the residents of Sinthian and the visiting artists who continually enliven the space with their collaborations, demonstrating the power of intercultural connection.
