The Independents’ Group (IG) will select research fellows and projects through a coordinated annual Call for Proposals. Candidates are asked submit a project proposal and work plan, responding to the themes, topics and collaborations offered by the Group. Projects will run once a year, with a duration of 4 to 6 months.
Prospective research fellows are young architects with work experience and demonstrated interest and success in experimental work. The fellows will have the opportunity to develop research projects and experimental prototypes for public presentation, exhibition and publication in collaboration with consultants and manufacturing partners under the guidance of the IG team.
An annual meeting will be held to bring together all Independents’ Group academic partners, consultants and manufacturers, and research fellows who have recently completed projects. The meetings include a public conference to disseminate the work of the programme, and an internal Independents’ Group conference.
As the programme develops the IG will aim to produce group publications and high profile exhibitions to disseminate results to the widest possible audience.
