Peter Reyner Banham spent his time in Buffalo engaged in a scholarly project on the imaginary of American industrial architecture that took the form of historical research, hands-on engagement and seminar instruction, resulting in his landmark work, A Concrete Atlantis.
In celebration of Banham’s legacy of experimental criticism, the fellowship is intended to support the research and creative activity of emerging practitioners. Candidates are encouraged to propose a research trajectory that will be developed in tandem with a pedagogical agenda. The Banham Fellow will teach a design studio and an elective course each semester for the duration of the one-year fellowship. In addition, the fellow will deliver a public lecture as part of our school wide series and prepare an exhibition that culminates from the research, teaching and/or creative work conducted while in residence at the school.
Digital applications should be composed of a well-considered proposal for research/creative work (1,500 words maximum), a curriculum vita, portfolio of work and names of three references.
Applications for the 2015 - 2016 academic year must be received by April 1, 2015.
The University at Buffalo is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
