LTL Architects Receives Graham Foundation Research Grant on the Domestic Section

LTL Architects is a recipient of the 2019 Graham Foundation Grant for Research to support ongoing development of work on the domestic section. Domestic section investigates the history and typologies of the single-family house as seen through section, from Palladio’s villas through to the twenty-first century. The project will include an illustrated analytical inventory of representative house sections and a series of new house designs based on this analysis. This project builds on the work presented in Paul Lewis, Marc Tsurumaki, and David Lewis' previous book Manual of Section (Princeton Architectural Press, 2016), which has been published in five languages and represents the first comprehensive analysis of the role of section in architecture.
