2017 Architectural Fellowship for the Public Realm
Perkins Eastman is once again proud to announce its annual Architectural Fellowship for the Public Realm, an annual summer program for a select student who demonstrates a keen interest in examining the interface between architectural design and public life. The paid summer fellowship is approximately nine weeks long and takes place in the firm’s headquarters in New York City’s Flatiron District.
The 2017 Fellow will assist with a variety of design and planning projects, and will help form a team to develop a project of their own. This project may focus on a particular public space (or set of spaces), and propose a design or intervention related to any or all of the following: transportation and public infrastructure, complete streets, placemaking, transit-oriented development, sustainable design, climate/economic resiliency, or other related concerns. There will be opportunities to receive feedback on the project from both peers and industry professionals working in the field. The final project and relevant findings will be delivered in the form of a design proposal in a seminar setting.
Application materials are due by Friday, March 31, 2017. Download PDF for all submission requirements and other details.
