We met Miles Gertler in the backyard of mansion in Toronto’s Rosedale neighbourhood. As the co-founder of Studio 93H, he took an unlikely space and turned it into an art venue. Now, in his solo exhibition at Corkin Gallery titled Superlith, Gertler brings architecture to the white room. He combines images with sculpture to create an environment that evokes the eerie familiarity of speculative fiction.
His architectural practice, Common Accounts, is currently exploring architecture’s relationship with the material business of death in the city and is in design development of its first built project in Ontario. In 2016, Gertler will complete his graduate degree in architecture at Princeton University.
