Howard E. LeFevre '29 Emerging Practitioner Fellowship

AUSTIN E. KNOWLTON SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE

Howard E. LeFevre ’19 Emerging Practitioner Fellowship

Got a fabulous architectural project that you just cannot quit thinking about, one almost ready to go, but only needs a chance and some resources to germinate?  Save the planet, clean the oceans, raise consciousness, tickle fancies, expand minds, right past wrongs, make everything awesome, whatever! It’s a jungle out there, we, the faculty of architecture at the Knowlton School know. And we respect that every species of knowledge, imagination and craft is as important as any other to the vitality of the ecology of our discipline, whether it seems from any perspective urgent or frivolous. So, if your idea/project is keeping you awake at night, we want to hear about it!!  APPLY FOR THIS FELLOWSHIP!! Worse that can happen is we say no this time around. Then, apply again next year. It is, after all, a finite world. Odds go up!

Situated within a major research university with state-of-the-art facilities, the Knowlton School provides a unique environment for innovative design research and critical inquiry. The Knowlton School enjoys the resources of the university and a metropolitan area of approximately two million people with easy access to several other metropolitan areas.

This Fellowship offers the successful applicant a 9-month fellowship to investigate and develop your project. In relation to that investigation and within the fellowship period, you will be asked: 1. To teach a design studio in which ideas related to your project are considered within the disciplinary context of architecture, and, 2. To prepare and present an exhibition as well as a pamphlet, catalogue or monograph about the project. The successful candidate will have a degree in architecture or a related field. The Fellowship provides a salary for teaching, a paid Graduate Research Assistant, and a separate budget for research/project materials.
