Terreform ONE Fellowships
You are invited to submit an application for the highly selective six-month research and design fellowship program sponsored by the RNR Family Foundation. Ideas and products from the fellowship will be integrated into a large-scale installation for the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum Triennial. Each design fellow will be given the opportunity to utilize a diverse array of advanced fabrication/rapid prototyping techniques to examine socio-ecological theory and species habitat quality. Our overall intent is to end extinction by all means possible on this fragile planet. Hosted by Terreform ONE in the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s premiere New Lab maker village, it is an interdisciplinary platform to engage divergent ideas about urban systems and the environment.
Skills + Qualifications
We are looking for architects/landscape architects/industrial designers who are impassioned, intellectually rigorous, and highly flexible with outstanding skills in one or more of the following areas:
· Environmental Science, Ecology, or Conservation Theory
· Physical Modeling and Prototyping
· Rendering, Visualization or Animation
· Coding/Programming or VR/MR
The fellows will be awarded a monthly stipend for the entirety of the program.
The fellowship is divided into two three-month phases with the research phase commencing in October through December. After the holiday break, we will reconvene in January for the prototyping phase which runs until April. The program is structured to give the fellows the autonomy to follow research trajectories that lead them outside the studio into places such as the wood/machine shop, architectural archives, bio-hacking laboratories and more.
Send a CV, portfolio of relevant work (3MB maximum), and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your cover letter should express your unique talents and how you plan to impact this interdisciplinary research group, e.g. specialist fabrication skill, coding or programming language, designing in virtual reality platforms, and etc.
Select applicants will be interviewed via in-person or skype. No phone calls, please!
