Harvard GSD is pleased to announce the second edition of the Wheelwright Prize, a $100,000 traveling fellowship open to talented early-career architects worldwide proposing exceptional itineraries for research and discovery. Available to architects practicing anywhere in the world, the Wheelwright Prize recognizes the importance of field research to professional development and reinforces Harvard GSD’s dedication to fostering investigative approaches to contemporary design.
“It is clear that today's fluid movement of people and ideas necessitates new approaches towards the understanding of architecture and urbanization. I am excited that in the coming years the Wheelwright Fellowship will be able to have a significant impact on the intellectual projects of young architects and, in turn, on the future of architecture and the built environment.”
—Dean Mohsen Mostafavi
