Field Fellowship Application Now Open
Awardee to Focus on Multimedia; Proposals Due September 29
The National Building Museum is currently accepting applications for the 2014 Field Fellowship. Proposals are due September 29, 2013.
Fellowships at the National Building Museum provide scholars with opportunities to pursue independent research related to the Museum’s broad areas of interest in the building arts. In addition, fellowships provide opportunities for interdisciplinary learning through exposure to all aspects of the Museum’s daily operations. This year, the Field Fellowship will support the creative, educational, and non-commercial use of video or multimedia projects to interpret the built environment. The intent is to foster the creation of content that can be used to enhance design education. For 2014, the Field Fellowship areas of interest include:
- Construction or demolition of buildings/infrastructure
- Sustainable waterways or waterfronts
- Design resilience for natural disasters
- Specialty building materials (particularly glass)
- The built environment of Washington, D.C.
- Play, playgrounds, and learning with/through building related toys
- Intersections between architecture and American cinema/or television, photography, or other fields within the fine arts
