Description:

Lyceum: A Traveling Fellowship in Architecture

When founded in 1891 by landscape architect Charles Eliot, The Trustees of Reservations (The Trustees) name was much better understood. The term “reservation” was used by Eliot to describe his own notion of "park-making." The Trustees of Reservations is the first private, nonprofit conservation organization of its kind in the country.

Governor Ames Estate lies in the center of the tightly developed village of North Easton, Massachusetts. It is adjacent to regional populations from the surrounding communities of over 320,000 people. The town recently has moved to create a cultural district to create a cohesive approach to marketing all it has to offer and creating opportunities for partnerships across many of the organizations. The cultural district is the Easton Shovel Town Cultural District and seeks to connect visitors to town landmarks, private businesses, and cultural initiatives.

Students are to design a 1,500 square foot event pavilion near or within the Estate House footprint to have a unique relationship with the designed landscape that can enhance the visitor experience and provide a platform for community, family gatherings and celebrations inviting new and regular visitors to the Ames Estate.

Students enrolled in any accredited school of architecture or landscape architecture in North America may participate. Please see the competition program for more detailed information.

Submission Deadline: May 14, 2021
