Description: “Architectures of Order” is an interdisciplinary research project of the Goethe University Frankfurt and Technical University of Darmstadt, with the Max-Polanck-Institute for European Legal History and the Deutsches Architekturmuseum as associated partners. The project investigates architecture as a cultural practice of ordering that manifests aesthetically, materially, spatially, discursively, as well as epistemologically. The fellowship program aims to expand the thematic scope and expertise of the resident research cluster as well as its national and international networks. The work of the fellow should demonstrate the connections with the goals of the project as well as its annual research theme. The theme for 2022, “Designing Order,” is dedicated to the architectural design process in its contemporary relevance and historical versatility, focusing on both the concepts of order that structure it and the new notions of order it produces. Please see website for more info.

Eligibility: Applications are welcome from applicants of diverse disciplinary backgrounds including but not limited to the areas of expertise of the project’s resident members:  architectural history & theory, art history, cultural & media studies, history, sociology, and design theory.
