Harvard University Graduate School of Design has announced the 2019 Richard Rogers Fellowship cycle. Open to accomplished practitioners and scholars working in fields related to the built environment, the research-focused residency program is based in London at the Wimbledon House, designed by Lord Richard Rogers in the late 1960s. Fellows have researched a diverse series of topics, including examinations of public and affordable housing; how food and cooking transform cities; and citizen-driven urban regeneration initiatives, among others. In 2015, Lord Richard and Lady Ruth Rogers generously gifted the Wimbledon House—designed by Rogers for his parents in the late 1960s—to Harvard GSD to ensure the Heritage-listed property’s continued use as a residence and to provide a unique research opportunity for future generations of professionals and scholars. Now entering its third cycle, the Richard Rogers Fellowship has previously welcomed 12 fellows from around the world. Each of the six selected fellows for 2019 will receive a three-and-a-half-month residency at the Wimbledon House, as well as round-trip travel expenses and a 10,000 USD cash stipend.
