The Foundation was formed with the principal objective of perpetuating and honouring Alastair Swayn’s memory by the awarding of grants to individuals, groups and organisations that progress Australian architecture and design.
The aim of the Foundation is to provide an opportunity for qualified Australian architects and designers to conduct research in their chosen field. It also aims to reward proven achievement of talented and deserving Australians with further opportunity in their pursuit of excellence for the enrichment of architecture and design knowledge in Australia.
The Alastair Swayn Foundation is a not for profit organisation governed by a Board of Directors. The Board of Directors are responsible for the financial administration of estate funds and conferring of grants.
