Three for Free

The Michigan Architectural Foundation (MAF) recently awarded Public Awareness Grants to three programs that increase our appreciation of architecture  
  • Project Pipeline Architecture Camp  introduces students to the practice of architecture. Developed by architect Bryan Cook in conjunction with the National Association of Minority Architects (NOMA), free camps are held in Grand Rapids, Detroit, and new this year, Flint. This is the third year the program has received a MAF Public Awareness Grant.
  • The Community Action Network’s CAN Art & Design is a free after-school program where students learn about architecture, sustainability, and design a project. This is the second year MAF had awarded the organization a Public Awareness Grant.
The Michigan Architectural Foundation’s Public Awareness Grants have funded a number of incredible programs which connect people with architecture in creative ways,” said Damian Farrell, FAIA, grant committee chair. “When we see children excited by learning, or adults who look at architecture in a different light after participating in programming we have supported, we are thrilled.”
The Public Awareness Grants are awarded periodically throughout the year. Past grants have helped fund films, lectures, events, workshops and educational programs. Click here for more information on application criteria and how to apply.
