The Graham Foundation Bookshop offers a selection of publications produced by the foundation's grantees, as well as titles related to our public programming and new, historically significant, and rare publications on architecture, urbanism, art, and related fields. In addition to relevant monographs, exhibition catalogues, research, and theory-based titles, the Graham Foundation Bookshop carries an extensive collection of local and international periodicals such as Abitare, apartamento, Domus, e-flux, Frieze, Grey Room, May Revue, Pin-Up, and Texte zur Kunst.
In fall 2013, the Graham Foundation commissioned Chicago-based designer Ania Jaworska to design the new bookshop, which was fabricated by Metal Magic and installed in the former dining room of the Madlener House.
Ania Jaworska is an architect and educator. She currently teaches art, design, and architecture courses at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Illinois at Chicago. She holds a master's degree in architecture from the Cracow University of Technology in Poland as well as the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. Her practice focuses on exploring the connection between art and architecture and her work explores bold simple forms, humor and commentary on conceptual, historic, and cultural references. Jaworska’s work was recently presented as part of 13178 Moran Street: Grounds for Detroit in Common Ground, the 13th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice (2012).
