Roberson Selected as Art Omi: Architecture Resident
Adjunct Professor Jeffery J. Roberson was selected as one of 10 residents to attend the 2020 Art Omi: Architecture Residency. While in residency, he will be exploring the practical applications of the Nine-Square Grid configuration within architecture — a defining problem of the Brooklyn-based design practice OFFICE ONTIC (co-founded by Jeff Roberson and Jin Kim in 2018).
From the Art Omi press release: “Now in its fourth year, the Art Omi: Architecture residency is the first and only of its kind in the United States, inviting ten early- to mid-career architects from around the world to develop work during a two-week residency at Art Omi in Ghent, New York. Described as ‘one of the world’s most inspiring design residencies,’ by Artsy, alumni include architects from over ten countries. . . . The ten architects selected for the 2020 cohort were chosen through a competitive juried process, and work on an array of scales and interests, including art, technology, design, and urbanism. During their residency in February and March, they will have the opportunity to experiment, innovate, and brainstorm with peers in a studio think-tank setting.”
