Grants to National Building Museum
2012 (Duration 3 years)
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Building Museum explores and celebrates the "building arts" and advances the quality of the built environment by educating people about its impact on their lives. This grant supports a five-year exhibit, House & Home, which explores how houses, apartments, and shelters reflect technical innovation, convey cultural meaning, and embody our personal and collective ideals. An accompanying series of educational programs will pursue related themes, including the premier educational symposium, "Designing Homes and Neighborhoods for an Aging Population" on the exhibit's opening day. The exhibit's themes support Foundation efforts to expand awareness of how housing affects families, communities, and society.
