Bard College invites applications for its 2024-2026 Architecture Fellowship. This two-year fellowship is awarded biennially to an emerging architect, urban designer, landscape architect or other spatial practitioner whose creative work and research advances new cultures of design that address a larger public. The fellowship is intended to support those embarking on a career in research and design pedagogy and to provide a context in which to develop new modes of thought relevant to the urgencies of the present.
Architecture at Bard is a new program at the college, launched in the Fall of 2020. Structured around an innovative curriculum, the program looks to critically re-situate architecture as a site for insurgent socio-spatial imaginaries and as a tool for building alliances that seek more just, liberating futures. As a non-professional degree program, Architecture at Bard privileges a forward-thinking pedagogy that aims to equip students with an expansive and experimental approach toward the field that simultaneously opens paths for engaging other disciplines spatially.
We are interested in candidates whose distinct research and practice attends to societal concerns and modes of spatial justice. Underwriting this ambition, Architecture at Bard is strongly committed to recruiting and supporting historically underrepresented voices, agendas and experiences that continue to be systemically underrepresented in both academia and architecture. The selected Fellow will have the opportunity to teach a total of three courses each academic year taught through the lens of their research. The Fellow will be expected to develop courses that contribute to the core curriculum and to propose original courses tied directly to their own creative work and research, thus inviting students into the process as collaborators. The culmination of the Fellowship will result in a public presentation of research work conducted during the Fellowship in the form of an exhibition, an event, or otherwise. The fellow will receive institutional support in the form of mentorship, an annual research stipend, as well as dedicated production funds to support the final public presentation. The Fellow is expected to fully engage in the academic and cultural life of the college during the two academic years in residence.
Candidates should hold at least a Master of Architecture degree or its equivalent. A shortlist of applicants will be invited within the Spring 2024 semester to present their work to the Bard community. Information and resources in regards to relocation, commuting, and transportation will be discussed with the shortlisted applicants.
Review of applications for the Architecture Fellowship will begin on Monday, November 20, 2023. Those interested should submit the following documents through interfolio by following this link: http://apply.interfolio.com/134561. For questions please contact Betsy Clifton at [email protected].
