“The Graham Foundation is pleased to announce the award of 45 grants to organizations around the world. These projects include exhibitions, publications, digital initiatives, and other public presentations led by organizations based in cities such as Atlanta, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, New Orleans, and Chicago, where the Graham Foundation is based. Together, these organizations support the work of eminent and emerging architects, artists, designers, critics, curators, scholars, and others, to explore new possibilities for the field and engage practitioners and publics worldwide.

The new grantees join a global network of individuals and organizations that the Graham Foundation has supported over the past 65 years. In that time, the Foundation has awarded more than 41 million dollars in direct support to over 4,800 projects by individuals and organizations.”

Radical Logic is a publication that explores the work of the award-winning architecture office Ensamble Studio led by Antón García-Abril and Débora Mesa. The book documents the first twenty years of the Boston- and Madrid-based office at a key moment in their career. After having designed and built a series of remarkable structures—including the Hemeroscopium House in Madrid, the SGAE Central Office in Santiago de Compostela, The Truffle in Costa da Morte, all in Spain; and Structures of Landscape for Tippet Rise Art Center in Montana, United States—their projects Ca’n Terra House in Menorca and the Ensamble Fabrica in Madrid mark the next phase of the office. Through specially commissioned interviews with the architects, essays, and photographic documentation of their work by photographer James Florio, the book provides unique insight into the ideas that drive the studio, the ambitions behind their key projects, and their ongoing explorations.
