The Maeder-York Family Fellowship recognizes an emerging designer whose work articulates the potential for landscape as a medium of design in the public realm. The residential Fellowship is awarded through a juried international portfolio competition and builds upon the Gardner’s Artist-in Residence programs that have fostered creativity and collaboration in the arts for over two decades.
In 2014, The Maeder-York Family Fellow in Landscape Studies will be in residence in one of the Renzo Piano-designed apartments at the Museum for three months during the summer. A public event centering on a discussion of their work is scheduled for the evening of June 12, 2014.
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.
The Selection Process
A jury comprised of international figures in landscape architecture and allied design disciplines will select the 2014 Maeder-York Family Landscape Fellow. The two-stage competition process will identify a short-list of up to five finalists who will be invited to interviews with the competition jury who will recommend a winner and runner-up to be announced in February 2014.
