The Harvard Graduate School of Design has named nine practitioners to receive the Loeb Fellowship for the 2016–2017 academic year. In the tradition of the 45-year-old program, these Fellows will spend the academic year in residence at the GSD. Over the course of the year, the Loeb Fellows take classes at the GSD and throughout Harvard’s network of professional and academic schools. They engage in vital discourse with faculty and students, participate in studio reviews and other activities at the school, and enrich their leadership abilities.
As in past years, this group of Fellows brings to the GSD a wealth of inspiring, impactful, and global experiences. They have investigated politics within refugee camps, social inequality in the Midwest, urban agriculture, design standards in Ethiopia, and more.
The Loeb Fellowship is curated by John Peterson, founder of Public Architecture, who himself was a Loeb Fellow in 2005 and 2006. He spoke about connections between Public Architecture and the Loeb Fellowship with Architect last spring.
