Maeder-York Family Fellowship in
The Maeder-York Family Fellowship in Landscape Studies is awarded annually to an emerging design talent whose work articulates the potentials for landscape as a medium of design in the public realm. This initiative is intended to recognize and foster emerging designers from across the design disciplines.
The 2017 Fellowship invites applications proposing design research projects engaging with the public realm, urbanization, and ecology of the greater Boston metropolitan area. The rich cultural, artistic, and academic setting offered by the Museum and the Boston area has long been a source of inspiration. The Maeder-York Family Fellowship in Landscape Studies represents a singular opportunity for creative exploration and interaction with a vibrant, active community.
The Maeder-York Family Fellow in Landscape Studies will be in residence in one of the Renzo Piano-designed apartments at the Museum for two months during the summer of 2017.
