Fellowship in the Built Environment, Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851
Urbanism is the subject of this year’s £30,000 Fellowship in the Built Environment
Recently the Commission funded a scoping study commissioned by the Royal Albert Hall about its urban setting and the potential of the northern part of the Royal Commission’s Estate. At the same time, led by the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, a major development of Exhibition Road is taking place.
This year the subject of the Commission’s Fellowship in the Built Environment is Urbanism, specifically to build on the valuable work from this scoping study and Exhibition Road Development, and to offer to many interested parties broad design ideas on how the urban quality of the area can be improved.
There is as yet no clear path on how the work may be taken forward after this study. The Commission hopes that by freely publicising the ideas created by this Fellowship others may be encouraged to progress the next stages and to recognise the value to society of the care and improvement of public spaces. Applicants may wish to offer their ideas on this.
- Closing date is Thursday, 1 October. For full details and application form see royalcommission1851.org.uk
