Cass alumnus and former Chevening Scholar awarded grant to develop book project.
Date: 7 May 2019
Cass alumnus Pen Sereypagna (Architecture MA, 2018), known as Pagna, has been awarded a grant by the prestigious Graham Foundation to develop a book project relating to his home city of Pnomh Penh.
The book is due for publication next year, and Pagna is currently working on a PhD proposal with a view to returning to the Cass to join the postgraduate research programme. While at the University in 2017-18 Pagna was a Chevening Scholar.
Founded in 1956, the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts fosters the development and exchange of diverse and challenging ideas about architecture and its role in the arts, culture, and society. The Graham realises this vision through making project-based grants to individuals and organizations and producing exhibitions, events, and publications.
Pagna is not the only grantee with a connection to the school. Pamela Johnston also won funding to support development of a publication (due out in 2020) with the Architecture Foundation about the Architecture Research Unit.
