The self-funded program allows applicants to spend time living and working at the academy’s campus in Rome, Italy. His eight-week stay begins in April.
"At Duda|Paine, we believe the study of historic, even ancient, architecture adds breadth and depth to our understanding of the spaces we create,” says Jeffrey Paine, Founding Principal at Duda|Paine Architects. “My research will enhance our awareness of how public spaces transform over time and will inform the creation of highly successful spaces for our clients and their communities."
Founded in 1894, the American Academy in Rome is the oldest American overseas center for independent study and advanced research in the arts and humanities. The Academy’s Visiting Artists and Scholars program provides artists and scholars of all nationalities the opportunity to experience the intellectual and artistic freedom that characterizes life at the American Academy in Rome.
"Jeff’s inquisitive, intellectual and collaborative working methodology will add to the Academy’s atmosphere of interdisciplinary exchange and innovation,” says David G. Booth, a former Trustee for the American Academy of Rome and the Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer of Dimensional Fund Advisors. “What will result is an approach to architecture and the methods of shaping contemporary space that fosters, furthers and enhances the ideas of individuals, organizations and communities.”
