La Villa Le Nôtre

Four fellowships are open:

Fellowship André Le Nôtre. This fellowship is intended to accompany non-french candidates proposing a writing project and a reflexion on a professional experience, whether that be as landscape architect, artist or scientist. This particular fellowship is proposed in collaboration with the Institut français (French Institute).

Fellowship Yves Brunier. This fellowship is intended for young creative talents proposing an art project. Its aim is to support the realisation of an artwork by a landscape architect or an artist which has the potential to enrich the graphic communication of a landscape project. This fellowship is open to both French and non-French candidates.

The work should be built upon landscape propositions or on a reflexion concerning landscape conception and garden art. This fellowship is open to both French and non-French candidates.

Fellowship Jean-Baptiste La Quintinie. This fellowhip is intended for landscape architects, artists or scientists working on the interface between landscape and environmental issues: biodiversity conservation, water conservation, climate change, energy transition. This fellowship is open to both French and non-French candidates.


Communication and report on the work done during the stay at the Villa Le Nôtre

Beyond the specific propositions made by the residents within their application, the school invites the residents to participate at workshops with the students, conferences and exhibitions during their stay. This could be extended to any types of multimedia or artistic expressions as installations or events in the King's kitchen garden (Potager du Roi).
