2024 Summer & Fall Independent Project Residency

The Institute for Public Architecture (IPA) welcomes applications for the 2024 Summer and Fall Independent Projects Residency based at the historic Block House on Governors Island.

The Residency program is intended for applicants with a clearly developed focus and/or approach who need time and space to work independently within the context of a supportive communal environment. Fellows are encouraged to skill-share and engage with their cohort through both planned and spontaneous activities throughout the Residency. 

Who should apply?

Emerging and mid-career architects, urbanists, landscape architects, designers, and those committed to the public realm in all disciplines are invited to apply. Applicants will bring their own interests and projects to the program and will receive opportunities to present their work to the public over the course of the Residency. Fellows receive project support through access to subject matter experts and resources relevant to their project. The program is especially well-suited for those on sabbatical or with funded projects. The program is not open to current students.

Although collaborators may apply, each applicant must complete an individual application and will be evaluated separately, with no guarantee that both collaborators will be selected.

Program Structure:

The Independent Projects Residency offers applicants the opportunity to bring their own interests and projects to New York City, with its vast network of expertise and leadership in the fields of architecture, urbanism, and design. Fellows will present the progress of their work to the public at Open [Block] House events throughout the Residency on Governors Island. Each Fellow will also receive project support through the IPA’s network of subject matter experts and resources.

During the Residency, Fellows’ work can be presented in any format: academic papers, articles, and/or book chapters, film, installations, drawings, models, macquettes, and other media.

Selection:

The selection of Fellows will be based on experience, intent and relevance of their project to the IPA’s mission of addressing social, physical and environmental inequities in the city. An independent selection committee composed of experts within the fields of architecture and design will review applications (to be announced shortly). Preference will be given to project proposals that make clear how the applicant will benefit from being based in New York City and on Governors Island.
