Each year, five residents are selected on a competitive basis for ‘Rural Compression,’ the Steven Myron Holl Foundation / ‘T’ Space Summer Architectural Residency in Rhinebeck, New York.
The 25-day intensive studio challenges participants to think and design critically. Residents enjoy theoretical and experimental freedom as they design a site-specific project unique to their program.
Using both analog and digital media tools, the program includes design critiques, pin-ups, lectures and conversations with invited professionals, as well as field trips in Dutchess County to destinations of acclaimed architectural and artistic interest.
Schedule of 2019 public lectures, workshops, lectures, pin-ups and critiques:
