“[C]reative hurricanes, tinkerers, provocateurs, code makers, code breakers or party hosts whose work represents the highest standard of excellence in design,” are invited to apply to the OfficeUS fellowship, the dynamic, interactive component to the six-month exhibition. The five principals, each representing either architecture, design, urban planning, urban design, or landscape design, will be responsible for engaging the biennale audience and a roster of about 300 drop-in experts in a discourse on the past 100 years of American architectural exports. Their theories and findings on “possible solutions to stagnation in modern-day architecture” as ARTINFO has described the mission, will be published as a book and exhibition at the Storefront in the spring of 2015.
Each fellow will be compensated with housing and a $15,000 stipend for the six-month period. “You make almost as much as an intern,” Storefront director Eva Franch i Gilabert joke at last week’s press conference. Full application details are available here.
