metalocus, INÉS LALUETA
For the year 2013, the Le Corbusier Foundation will be awarding a grant to young researchers wishing to devote their studies to the work of Le Corbusier. It will also award a grant to a young visual artist of either sex wishing to produce work inspired by Le Corbusier's output in the fields of architecture or the visual or graphic arts.
Research proposals should deal primarily with aspects of Le Corbusier's 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 Corbusier's 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 proposal 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: 35) in the final (Master's or post-graduate) phase of their studies, e.g. fine arts, architecture, history, urbanism, history of art, etc., and preferably attached to a research laboratory or similar scientific establishment.
The proposal should show how the project for which the Foundation's aid is being sought may be seen as a particular stage in a wider or more long-term programme, e.g. doctorate, habilitation, institutional research, book project, etc. In justifying their intended use of the Foundation’s aid, candidates should specify how they see such aid as essential for the specific demands entailed in pursuing this aspect of their research, e.g. travel, availability, purchase of materials, fees, etc.
The file should include the following items:
– a research project of approximately twenty pages (methodology, hypotheses, nature of the results expected, summary bibliography, calendar); – a curriculum vitae; – a list of work already completed; – two letters of recommendation from researchers, lecturers, architects or recognized figures.
Candidates must also inform the Foundation of any aid requested or obtained from other public or private organizations in connection with the project proposed.
The maximum amount of the grant to be awarded is 10,000 €. This sum is to be paid in three instalments: one third upon the signing of the contract, one third upon submission of a progress report and one third upon submission of the final report.
