I was surprised to read that the Architecture Foundation will not be funded by CABE at the end of this financial year (AJ 22.11.01).
The Foundation has submitted an application for CABE funding under the Regional Funding Programme in order to continue the excellent work it undertakes.
The outcome of this application has yet to be decided.
From April 2001, CABE will start to fund a number of outreach programmes around the country, some of them based at Architecture Centres. Instead of receiving its funds on a preferential basis, as it has done since CABE's inception two years ago, the Architecture Foundation is now part of a competitive bidding process with other organisations. CABE will obviously consider the Foundation as a strong contender for funding.
