Alpa Nawre MLAUD ’11 and Christina Milos MLA ’11 have been awarded the inaugural Mellon Fellowships in Urban Landscape Studies at Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection in Washington, D.C. Ms. Milos is currently engaging in her studies at Dumbarton, exploring Nigeria’s productive landscapes and how they can engage in future urbanization processes. Ms. Nawre will study at Dumbarton in Spring ’16, where she will document the multi-functional use and adaptability of the water landscape systems in India–of ponds, and river and canal edges which compel the rethinking of the design of rigid, mono-functional, and culturally-disconnected urban water infrastructure today.
