Ed Wall has been awarded a Graham Foundation grant for research into global architectural practice. Founded in 1956, the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts fosters the development and exchange of diverse and challenging ideas about architecture and its role in the arts, culture, and society. The Graham realizes this vision through making project-based grants to individuals and organizations and producing exhibitions, events, and publications.
The Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts has announced 2020 Grants to Individuals. A total of 52 new grants will support critical projects that tackle contemporary issues, broaden historical perspectives, and explore the future of architecture and the designed environment. They are awarded for research, exhibitions, publications, films, and digital initiatives, among other formats.
The 2020 grants support emerging and established architects, scholars, writers, artists, designers, curators, filmmakers, and other innovators working worldwide on urgent issues that further the contemporary understanding of the built environment. This cohort was selected from the annual open call for ideas that resulted in over 600 submissions last fall.
