Aaron Landsman receives Graham Foundation Award

The project is comprised of workshops on ethnographic storytelling for residents of NYC’s Lower East Side, a performance created with young people in low-income housing and urban planners, and one-on-one conversations with strangers.

One of the most significant funders in the field of architecture, the Graham Foundation annually supports diverse projects that expand opportunities for public engagements with architecture and its role in contemporary society. Perfect City is one of two public programs chosen to receive funding, named among 59 projects in categories such as exhibitions, film/video/new media, publications, and research.
