Peter Reyner Banham spent his time in Buffalo engaged in a scholarly project on the imaginary of American industrial architecture that took the form of historical research, hands-on engagement and seminar instruction, resulting in his landmark work, A Concrete Atlantis.

In celebration of Banham’s legacy of experimental criticism, the University of Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning is seeking applications for the Peter Reyner Banham Fellowship, intended to support the research and creative activity of emerging practitioners.

Candidates are encouraged to propose a research trajectory that will be developed in tandem with a pedagogical agenda. The Banham Fellow will teach a design studio and an elective course each semester for the duration of the one-year fellowship. In addition, the fellow will deliver a public lecture as part of a school wide series and prepare an exhibition that culminates from the research, teaching and/or creative work conducted while in residence at the school.

Digital applications should be composed of a well-considered proposal for research/creative work (1,500 words maximum), a curriculum vitae, portfolio of work and names of three references.

Applications for the 2017-2018 academic year must be received by April 1, 2017. For more information, please click here.
