Description: Award is granted biannually to an emerging architect to support 6-12 months of international travel for architectural research. The 2021 Theme is Disruption. We are living in disruptive times…defined by climate crisis driving unprecedented current and future weather extremes and an ongoing global pandemic, alongside centuries of systemic racism in stark need of addressing. Radical solutions are required at all scales and systems. How does Architecture–in all its modalities–disrupt and drive change? How can architecture have a measurable impact? What are the disruptions to define the next decade? And will they redefine design? The Steedman is an award that fosters international research in architecture through investigations outside of one’s home country. In light of the COVID-19 and climate crises, extra consideration will be given to creative proposals that minimize carbon footprint. See website for more info.

Award: $75,000 award to support 6-12 months of international travel for architectural research

Eligibility: Open to anyone, anywhere in the world, who has received an accredited degree in architecture within the last eight years. Fellows must be able to complete their proposed projects within 18 months of receiving the award. Additionally, at the conclusion of their fellowship, Fellows must make arrangements to share their research with the Washington University and local AIA architectural communities.
