Art Omi: Architecture 2023

Associated Residency Program

The Art Omi: Architecture residency invites 10 early- to mid-career architects to further develop their work during a full two-week residency at Art Omi. Residents are chosen through a competitive juried process and are invited to attend and participate, at no cost to themselves (except for travel expenses). All meals and spacious, comfortable accommodations are provided in a scenic setting in Columbia County, New York. Art Omi is located near the city of Hudson, about two hours north of New York City.

Additional Eligibility Information


Application is open to architects from any part of the world that have been professionally active for at least the past five (5) years since professional licensing or obtaining an M. Arch. degree in the U.S. or international equivalent. Applications will be accepted from early and mid-career architects in active professional practice or in academia with an architectural design teaching concentration. We do not accept applications from students currently enrolled in any B. Arch, M. Arch, or Phd program. Space is very limited and a diverse and international group is sought, consistent with all Art Omi residency programs and aligning with the mission of the Art Omi: Architecture program. Architecture Residents are required to remain on campus during the entire two weeks.

Application Requirements

  1. Architect's Statement, preferably in narrative form, about your work without any images or outside links. This is a fundamental document for our jury to fully understand your architectural practice.
  2. A Project Proposal for the Architecture Residency describing the work that will be carried out while on campus during two weeks.
  3. A Portfolio of your work (10 pages max)
  4. Your Resume and/or Curriculum Vitae.

Proposed Project

Applicants must submit and describe a project they wish to work on, on their own, while at Art Omi. Projects of any scale may be conceptual or practical in nature, and may be an ongoing or existing project or a new design scheme to be initiated during the residency. Projects may not be client based nor directed. While the campus and the dedicated Art Omi: Architecture grounds may serve as background inspiration or for documentation, projects cannot and will not be built on premises. In all instances a visual presentation is required by the end of the residency. This may be in the form of drawings, study models, maquettes, collages, digital images and the like. Each resident is expected to bring all of their own design tools.

Art Omi continues to monitor the Covid-19 pandemic. All programs require residents to be fully vaccinated and boosted by the start of their Residency program to be eligible for participation.
