About the Rose Fellowship
The Enterprise Rose Architectural Fellowship partners early-career architectural designers with local community development organizations for a three-year term, where they facilitate an inclusive approach to development to create green, sustainable, and affordable communities. As an integral staff member of the organization, the fellow will focus on advancing the organization’s practices in community engagement, sustainability and design excellence. By becoming a fellow, you join a growing network of passionate and talented public interest designers who are continuously changing what is possible in community development. This year, fellowship opportunities are located with Quest Community Development Corporation in Atlanta, Epicenter in Green River, UT, Venice Community Housing in Los Angeles, CA, The Trust for Public Land based in St Paul, Minn., and the Fairmount Park Conservancy in Philadelphia.
To accentuate Green River’s rural pride and pioneering spirit, Epicenter provides housing and business resources and promotes the arts. A passionate, multidisciplinary team of young professionals, we engage, collaborate with, and learn from our community. Founded in 2009 by three architecture graduates, Epicenter pursues community development in a holistic manner, using design thinking to resolve complicated and engrained issues. For the past eight years, Epicenter has been eager to partner with their community to address Green River’s problems with as much imagination and determination as those tasks require. Green River is 50 miles of desert driving away from the nearest town of consequence and 82 miles away from the county seat. Part of the reason Epicenter exists is because of how remote Green River is from other communities and traditional community development resources. Epicenter’s programmatic focus is within the local population, but our reach and impact is global.
