About Research Through Making: The 2010 Research Through Making Faculty research grant recipients were announced by Dean Monica Ponce de Leon and awarded to UM Taubman College architecture faculty on April 30, 2010. Five grants of $20,000 each were competitively awarded for the production of a research or creative project that is predicated on MAKING.Funds can be used for project materials, student assistance, and other expenses. Entries to this competition were anonymously evaluated by a distinguished jury from outside the College. Projects will be completed by Jan. 8, 2011, and exhibited in the College Gallery. Jurors were Ned Cramer, editor-in-chief of Architect Magazine; Karen Fairbanks, Ann Whitney Olin Professor of Professional Practice in Architecture and the Chair of the Department of Architecture at Barnard College; and Joe Rosa, UM’s Art Museum (UMMA) director.
