The School of Architecture congratulates Associate Professor Amanda Lawrence, a recipient of a Graham Foundation Award. She won the award with her co-editor Ana Miljački, associate professor of architecture at Massachusetts Institute of Technology for the new publication entitled Terms of Appropriation: Essays on Architectural Influence.
This book is a collection of critical essays that address pressing and timely questions regarding architectural influence. Written by a group of rising scholars in the field of architectural history and criticism, the essays cover a range of architectural subjects but they are linked in their investigations of how architects engage with their predecessors, and in what ways one can productively begin to analyze the workings of influence.
Founded in 1956, the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts makes project-based grants to individuals and organizations and produces public programs to foster the development and exchange of diverse and challenging ideas about architecture and its role in the arts, culture, and society.
The foundation just awarded $490,000 in new grants to individuals around the world to support 59 innovative projects engaging original ideas in architecture. Among the funded projects are exhibitions, publications, films, live performances, and site-specific installations.
