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 the school wide series and prepare an exhibition that culminates from the research, teaching, and/or creative work conducted while in residence at the school.
Applications should be composed of a well-considered proposal for research/creative work (1500 words maximum), as well as a curriculum vita, portfolio of work, and names of three references.
The University at Buffalo is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
