Description: The Art Omi: Architecture residency program invites ten early- to mid-career architects from around the world to develop their work during a full two-week residency on Art Omi’s campus. Architecture Residents are selected on the basis of their individual proposed project and portfolio. Completed projects are presented in an informal critique setting at the end of the residency period, with visitors invited to see the proceedings. Each year a distinguished Architecture Critic is invited to visit and meet with the residents during the last weekend of the residency and will lead the final presentations where the public can observe this key aspect in the process of making architecture. Applicants must submit and describe a project they wish to work on, on their own, while at Art Omi. Projects may be conceptual or practical and may be an on-going or existing project that requires completion or a new design scheme to be initiated and completed by the end of the residency. Projects may not be client based nor directed. In all instances a visual presentation and a final work product is required. This may be in the form of drawings, maquettes, collages, digital images and the like. Written manuscripts and essays are not to be worked on nor initiated while at Art Omi. 

Award: Two-week residency; participants receive individual accommodations and dedicated desk space. Chef-prepared dinner served daily for communal meals, and a fully stocked kitchen provides plentiful food for lunch, breakfasts, and snacks. Each resident is expected to bring their own design tools, with some limited printing and up to $50 allowance for materials provided.

Eligibility: Open to architects from any part of the world that have been professionally active for at least the past six (6) years since professional licensing or obtaining an M. Arch. degree in the U.S. or internationally. Applications will be accepted from early and mid-career architects in active practice or in academia with an architectural design teaching concentration. Students currently enrolled in any B. Arch, M. Arch, or PhD program are ineligible. A Master’s degree in Architecture and/or an architectural license IS a requirement. 

Deadline: 11:59 pm EST, Nov. 15, 2021
