The Graham Foundation has announced a new round of Carter Manny Award winners. The Carter Manny Award program supports the completion of outstanding doctoral dissertations on architecture and its role in the arts, culture, and society. Established in 1996, this program is the only pre-doctoral award dedicated to architectural scholarship, and honors architect Carter H. Manny (1918–2017) and his contributions to the Graham Foundation—as founding trustee 1956, director 1993–71, and director emeritus—by supporting projects that are poised to impact how architecture is studied and practiced. Selected by an external panel of scholars, there are two types of awards to support different phases of the doctoral dissertation: the Carter Manny Writing Award and the Carter Manny Research Award. Additionally, a number of citations of special recognition are also awarded by the review panel.
