Arts Council funding review for Architecture Foundation

  • Comment

The Arts Council has shifted its three-year funding arrangement with the Architecture Foundation to a year-by-year application scheme. The move is part of a general review, according to foundation head Lucy Musgrave, who said she was pleased with the frozen £110,000 budget for 1998/99. An Arts Council spokesperson said it was preparing for changes whereby it may make more use of lottery money later this year. Other architectural initiatives at the council also received £110,000.

Meanwhile the foundation has changed the name of its forthcoming 'directory' of emerging architects, to become a 'survey' of 'New Architects', to be launched in late March. 'We thought 'directory' was a bit dry and encyclopaedic,' said Musgrave, 'for what has turned out to be a beautiful book.' The book will contain details of 83 practices selected in a two-stage process from 143 entries.
