Announced Grants: Fondation Le Corbusiers Award for Young Researchers 2016
30th June 2016, Fondation Le Corbusier, Paris, France
"In accordance with the provisions of Le Corbusierīs will, the Fondation wishes to encourage young researchers. The Fondation has decided in 2016 to award grants to completed research on Le Corbusierīs work, already published or not.
Works submitted to the nomination must deal primarily with aspects of Le Corbusierīs life and/or work that have not previously been researched in sufficient detail or, in the case of areas already studied, should put forward original approaches (multidisciplinary, comparative, transversal, etc.). All aspects of Le Corbusierīs life and/or work and its reception may be envisaged: the built work, unrealized architectural or urban projects, the furniture, his work in the visual arts - painting, drawing, tapestry, exhibitions, etc. - or his written work, literary or theoretical. These include any research tending to further knowledge of Le Corbusier the man and understanding of his legacy to us.
This call for proposals is aimed at young researchers (maximum age: 40).
In justifying their intended use of the Foundationīs aid, candidates should specify how they see such aid as essential for the specific demands entailed in disseminating their research (by publication, translation, etc.). [...]
All applications in response to this call for proposals should reach the Foundation before 30th June 2016. [...]"
