Graham Foundation announces 2024 Grants to Individuals

Graham Foundation announced this week the 2024 Grants to Individuals. The sum of $519,500 will be distributed among 56 recipients from domestic and international cities including Beijing; Cairo; Delhi; and Kampala, Uganda.

In total, 84 individuals were selected from a pool of nearly 600 submissions. The funded projects include publications, research, exhibitions, films, site-specific installations, and digital initiatives that expand contemporary ideas of architecture through innovative rigorous interdisciplinary work on design and the built environment, the Graham Foundation shared in a statement. Among this year’s winners are Germane Barnes, Ines Weizman, Jess Myers, Sara Zewde, James Wines, and others familiar to AN readers. Among topics to be addressed in the forthcoming works that the grant money will support are Frederick Law Olmsted, development in Gaza, and women in architecture.

Since its founding in 1956, the Graham Foundation has awarded $44 million in direct support to over 5,100 projects by organizations and individuals. The historic Chicago-based organization’s mission is to “convene audiences and collaborators around current and historic ideas across architecture, design, and education.”

The full list of 2024 Graham Foundation individual grantees and their respective awards projects are listed below, and more information about each recipient and their respective project concept can be found here.
