The Graham Foundation announces the award of 534,850 USD for 74 new grants to individuals that support international projects. Grantee projectsundertaken by 111 collaboratorsrepresent a diverse group of individuals and collectives engaging original ideas that advance our understanding of the designed environment. Selected from over 600 proposals, the funded projects include exhibitions, publications, films, new media works, and site-specific installations that promote rigorous scholarship, stimulate experimentation, and foster critical discourse in architecture. The projects are helmed by architects, artists, choreographers, historians, and filmmakers, hailing from cities such as Milan, Italy; Phnom Penh, Cambodia; Tallinn, Estonia; Kampala, Uganda; and Chicago, IL, where the Graham Foundation is based.

The new grantees join a worldwide network of individuals and institutions that the Graham Foundation has supported through the award of more than 4,400 grants over the past 62 years in its role as one of the most significant funders in the field of architecture. “We are thrilled to celebrate the visionary ideas of this year’s cohort,” says Sarah Herda, director of the Graham Foundation. “We continue to advocate for innovative positions in architecture, anticipating the increasingly expansive nature of the field with ambitious and multidisciplinary projects.”
