The Enterprise Rose Architectural Fellowship honors the late Frederick P. Rose, a prominent developer and philanthropist. Mr. Rose believed in the value of good design and the spirit of public service. Since its inception in 2000, the fellowship has achieved dramatic results in neighborhoods across the country through the creation or preservation of more than 10,000 sustainable and affordable homes.
