Graham Foundation awards DoppelHouse with a grant for new art & architecture book

Groag cover FINAL-01We’re pleased to announce that DoppelHouse Press has received a grant from the Graham Foundation for Jacques and Jacqueline Groag, Architect and Designer: Two Hidden Figures of the Viennese Modern Movement by architecture historian Ursula Prokop.

Prokop’s meticulous history restores Jacques and Jacqueline Groag to their rightful places in the pantheon of Viennese Modernists. She explores their individual careers in Vienna and Czechoslovakia, their early collaborations in the 1930s, their lives as Jewish émigrés, and the couple’s unique contributions in Britain for postwar exhibitions, monuments, furniture and textile design. This full color edition contains images of recently found extant works, previously unpublished photo documentations, as well as paintings and diaries from family archives. Learn more about the project on the Graham website.

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. DoppelHouse Press is among 53 grantees this year whose work “continues to advocate for engaging original ideas that advance our understanding of the designed environment.”

Look for the book in Spring 2019!
