Yesterday, the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, a Chicago–based architecture institution, named the 2020 individual winners of its annual grant program.

Fifty-two individuals or teams of two pursuing architecture-related projects won grants this year, and the winning projects cover a variety of topics from around the world.

Among the many winners this year, urbanist and editor Jess Myers won funding for the third season of her podcast, Here There Be Dragons; journalist Geoff Manaugh won for his Invisible Cities research project; architectural designer Beatriz A. Santos won for a research project on the Eatonville, Florida, settlement of formerly enslaved people; and artist Jina Valentine won for a research project on W. E. B. Du Bois’s 1900 Exhibit of American Negroes. The grant-winning projects take many forms, including films, exhibitions, publications, and new media.

In total, the foundation is awarding $320,800 through these grants, though it has not specified how much each grantee has won.

The foundation will announce its organizational grants, Graham Foundation Fellows, and Carter Manny Awards later this year.

More information and a full list of this year’s winners, along with information about winners from previous years, are available on the foundation’s website.
