Michiel van Iersel has been selected as Loeb Fellow, a year-long research position at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Currently he is engaged with the Academy of Architecture as Fellow of the Architecture research group of Chief Government Architect Floris Alkemade.
Each year the Fellowship, founded in the 60's by John en Frances Loeb, selects a group of exceptional mid-career practitioners who positively influence the shaping of the built and natural environment, for a year of independent study at Harvard University. The fellows receive financial support and virtually unlimited access to the educational resources of Harvard and MIT.
The fellows represent a broad spectrum of expertise – consisting of architects, public artists, urban planners, journalists, landscape architects, civic leaders, policy makers – and are brought together from around the world with a common purpose: to strengthen their ability to further advance their personal development and professional career.
The Loeb Fellowship starts in August of 2018 and lasts a year. Michiel van Iersel will stay connected to the Architecture research group of the Academy of Architecture until the end of this year.
