|Meet 2012 Field Fellow Annah MacKenzie.|
Fellowships at the National Building Museum provide scholars with opportunities to pursue independent research related to the Museum’s areas of interest in the building arts. Research projects relating to the Museum’s collections, exhibitions, or public programs are encouraged. In addition to independent research, fellowships provide opportunities for interdisciplinary learning through exposure to all aspects of the Museum’s daily operations.
The Museum’s educational programs focus on disciplines relating to the built environment including architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, design, engineering, construction, and historic preservation. Projects or studies that broaden and diversify the research conducted within these disciplines are also encouraged.
The National Building Museum’s permanent collections are particularly strong in the materials, styles, and construction practices that defined urban America from the end of the 19th through the first half of the 20th century. For more details, please visit our collections page.
