Maeder-York Family Fellowship in
The Maeder-York Family Fellowship in Landscape Studies at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum was created in 2012 to recognize emerging design talent across disciplines dealing with landscape and support experimentation, research, and achievement in design through landscape. In addition, with each selection the committee aims to identify work embodying landscape as a medium of design for the public realm and grow disciplinary and professional capacity within landscape architecture.
The biennial Maeder-York Family Fellowship in Landscape Studies is awarded to an emerging design talent whose work articulates the potential for landscape as a medium of design in the public realm. This initiative is intended to recognize and foster emerging design talent from across the design disciplines whose work embodies the potentials for landscape as a medium of public works.
In 2016, The Maeder-York Family Landscape Fellow will be in residence in one of the Renzo Piano-designed apartments at the Museum for three months during the summer.
Landscape architects and designers from a range of allied design professions including architecture, engineering, urban design and planning, as well as the horticultural and garden arts, who can demonstrate a significant engagement with the landscape medium are invited to apply.

A jury comprised of international figures in landscape architecture and allied design disciplines will select the 2016 Maeder-York Family Landscape Fellow.
