SPUR is pleased to issue a call for applicants for a twelve-week fellowship in the summer of 2012.

The Piero N. Patri Fellowship in Urban Design is a hands-on position for a current graduate student or 2010/2011 graduate in urban design, architecture, landscape architecture or a related field. The fellowship provides the opportunity to gain firsthand experience working in the urban design and planning field on a project that will have a positive impact on the city of San Francisco and the Bay Area.

San Francisco expects a significant increase in waterfront visitors during America’s Cup 34 in 2013. This year’s fellow will develop a program to engage visitors and neighbors with a visioning project about the San Francisco southeast waterfront. Drawing upon the findings of past Patri Fellowship projects, the fellow will study the history and development of the southeast waterfront and analyze opportunities to increase public access and awareness to further San Francisco’s Blue Greenway projects. Use of case studies will provide inspiration for the development of an interpretive strategy for providing tangible and intangible connections to this important area of San Francisco. The final deliverable will be an informational, web-based, multi-media tool with accompanying print component. The fellow will refer to past and potential plans and designs as benchmarks of progress and will create a project that will entice visitors and neighbors to better understand the potential future of the southeast waterfront.


Applications due via e-mail by 5 p.m., Friday February 3, 2012.
