Graham Foundation Awards $400,000 to Organizations for Making Advancements in Architecture

The Graham Foundation announced today that it has awarded more than $400,000 in grants to organizations across the globe for projects engaging original ideas in architecture. Among the forty-one projects recognized are exhibitions, publications, events, research projects, and site-specific installations and performances.

“This year marks an extraordinary group of projects from organizations around the world working to advance architectural thinking, push the boundaries of the field, and expand into previously underrepresented areas,” said Graham Foundation director Sarah Herda.

Recipients include the Architectural League for its publication examining the physical dimensions of the criminal justice system in the built environment as critical spaces of urban infrastructure; the 2017 Black in Design Conference organized by the African American Student Union at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design; and Storefront for Art and Architecture’s exhibition curated by Bryony Roberts, which addressed marching performances as a medium for community cultural identity and political resistance. A full list of the 2017 grantees can be found on the foundation’s website.
