The Beyer Blinder Belle Foundation has awarded the 2019 John Belle Travel Fellowship to James Piacentini, Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, for his proposal, “Riace Rinasce” [Riace Reborn]: Inter-Cultural Collaboration as a Model for the Preservation, Adaptation, and Growth of Public Space.
The Beyer Blinder Belle Foundation is continuing to support the Pratt Center for Community Development’s initiative “Basement Apartments Safe for Everyone (BASE)” for its second Community Planning Grant.
For the second consecutive year, the Beyer Blinder Belle Foundation has awarded its Youth Education Grant to the ACE Mentor Program of Greater New York to sponsor scholarships for two graduating high school students pursuing careers in architecture, urban design/planning, or historic preservation, to support their post-secondary education.
The Beyer Blinder Belle Foundation advances the role of architecture, planning, and preservation in strengthening the physical and social fabric of our cities, communities, and institutions.
Through fellowships, grants, and other initiatives, the Foundation engages the full cycle of design, from inspiring young people to enter the profession, to supporting graduate research, to enabling thoughtful, socially-conscious design and planning that directly benefits communities.
This mission is inspired by the core values of Beyer Blinder Belle, which from its founding defined an approach to design focused on architecture empowering people–through their interaction on streets and in neighborhoods, and through their connections to the surrounding built environment.
Application is open to students of any nationality in their penultimate year of a Master’s or PhD degree program in architecture, historic preservation and/or urban design at one of 34 selected schools in the USA, UK and Canada. The deadline to apply is February 10, 2020.

The John Belle Travel Fellowship is a $10,000 annual award by the Beyer Blinder Belle Foundation in honor of John Belle, FAIA, RIBA, Hon. PhD, a founding partner of Beyer Blinder Belle Architects & Planners. John devoted his career to the public realm — the planning, design, restoration and adaptive reuse of public buildings and urban centers. The purpose of the Fellowship is to expand students’ understanding of the public realm in existing cities through travel and research, and how the knowledge gained might be applied to contemporary urban needs and design challenges.
