EMiLA FELLOWSHIP 2021 - 2022 École nationale supérieure de paysage!
The EMiLA Fellowship at ENSP Versailles and Marseille is awarded annually to an emerging designer or an already-established landscape architect, whose work articulates the potential for landscape as a medium of design to take an important role in transformations of public realm at territorial and/or urban scale. The position is a one-year position at half-time or a full-time position over one semester. The teaching language is primarily English, ability to communicate in French is considered an advantage.
THE EMiLA TEAM:
EMiLA (European Master in Landscape Architecture) is a Master’s Degree run and shared by five leading European schools and Universities in the field of Landscape Architectural design:
- Amsterdam University of the Arts (AUA)/Amsterdam Academy of Architecture (AHK)
- Universitat Polytècnica de Catalunya (UPC)/Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura (ETSAB) / Escola Superior d’Agricultura de Barcelona (ESAB)
- The University of Edinburgh / Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) / The Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (ESALA)
- Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH) / Fakultät für Architektur und Landschaft
- École nationale supérieure de paysage (site of Versailles and Marseille) (ENSP)
The aim of this Master program is to foster students to be more aware of the European dimensions in landscape at policy level as well as at large/territorial-scale through design practice. Through this process, the students begin to better understand our cultural landscape differences, but also, how important landscape issues cross through national borders and require Pan-European reflections and strategies. Moreover, the curriculum offers students to learn from other universities’ pedagogic methods and it enables them to begin to build up their own future professional network in an international context. (www.emila.eu).

The EMiLA Fellowship is also intended to have an active role in reinforcing the partnerships between the EMiLA institutions via different activities.
