Cosmic Dust: Summer Architecture Residency

July 5 - July 28, 2019

This ‘T’ Space residency welcomes students and professionals of architecture, as well as artists with a demonstrated interest in architecture.

Five residents will be selected on a competitive basis for ‘Rural Compression – Cosmic Dust,’ the 2019 ‘T’ space Summer Architectural Residency in Rhinebeck, New York. The 23-day intensive studio, a program of the Steven Myron Holl Foundation for undergraduate, graduate students and young professionals, challenges participants to think and design critically. 2019’s residents will enjoy theoretical and experimental freedom as they design a center for cosmological observation.

Using both analog and digital media tools, the program is complemented by design critiques, pin ups and conversations with invited professionals and exhibited artists. Students visit Dutchess County destinations of acclaimed architectural and artistic interest. Venues and personalities change year-to-year, and have included institutions like the Dorsky Museum, Art Omi, Grace Farms and Dia:Beacon with critiques by architects Tatiana Bilbao, Lars Müller and Steven Holl.
