Loeb Fellowship, Harvard Design School: 2005 Fellows

Loeb Fellowship Program, Harvard Design School

The only program of its kind in the nation, the Loeb Fellowship provides a unique opportunity for nurturing the leadership potential and professional development of accomplished mid-career individuals in design and other fields related to the built and natural environment.
Loeb Fellowships are awarded to highly-motivated individuals who can create independent study programs that make effective use of Harvard's resources, and who will use their studies to benefit society at large. Established and endowed in 1970 by John L. Loeb, 1924 graduate of Harvard College, Loeb Fellowships have been awarded to more than 300 individuals. In 1988, an Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects recognized the Fellowship "for improving the quality of the built environment through the education of the practitioners who affect that environment."
Loeb Fellows come from a diverse range of professional backgrounds in both the public and private sectors from traditional fields such as architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning, to others whose work also concerns the urban and natural environment, such as journalists, artists, housing specialists, public officials, and community advocates. The interplay among such a wide range of professionals provides a uniquely fertile learning environment. In addition to faculty and curriculum at the Harvard Design School, Loeb Fellows also have access to curriculum at Harvard College and Harvard's other graduate schools, including the schools of government, business, education, law, public health, and arts and sciences.
Fellows pursue their interests through coursework, writing, research, and joint projects. They also serve as a resource for the Harvard Design School and other parts of Harvard University, bringing their experience and observations to the classroom, the studio, and special interest groups, and sharing with students the trends and challenges facing today's practicing design professionals.
