Howard E. LeFevre ’29 Emerging Practitioner Fellowship
The architecture section of the Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University seeks candidates for the Howard E. LeFevre ’29 Emerging Practitioner Fellowship.
The annual fellowship offers the opportunity and resources for an emerging practitioner to pursue an advanced research project directed toward expanding the boundaries of the discipline. Past fellows have explored a broad range of topics relative to contemporary issues in the discipline and its cultural context.
Since 2000, the LeFevre Fellowship has supported architects and designers with a range of research interests, including history, theory, contemporary culture, media, technology, material assembly, and advanced digital techniques. We seek candidates to continue the tradition of supporting innovative research centered on topics relevant to the continued evolution of disciplinary practice.
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.
This Fellowship offers the successful applicant a 9-month fellowship to investigate and develop a research project and to teach in the architecture program.
The applicant awarded the Fellowship will be asked
- to teach design studios in which ideas related to their project are considered within the disciplinary context of architecture, and
- to prepare and present a public exhibition.
The Fellowship provides a salary for teaching, a paid graduate research assistant, and a separate budget for research/project materials.
