The British School at Rome is delighted to announce the renewal and relaunch of the Rome Prize in Architecture. This prestigious six-month residency provides young architects with an extraordinary opportunity to gain first-hand experience of the buildings and cities of Italy, and daily engagement with the exemplary historic and modern buildings of Rome.
Unique to the BSR experience is the closely-knit engagement with related artistic disciplines within the BSR — painters, sculptors, photographers, for example — as well as historians and archaeologists. Lectures by fellow award-holders,eminent visiting architects, artists and scholars, and exhibitions of work —including the award-holders’ own — create an unrivalled dynamic and snapshot of contemporary culture. Working collaborations are formed by award-holders that last a lifetime.
The renewal of the Rome Prize in Architecture has been made possible with the support of a group of private donors — amongst them, Robert Adam, Bob Allies, Jeremy Blake, Tim Bell, Eric Parry, Hugh Petter and Robert Tavernor, most of whom have held awards at the BSR and whose contribution to this fund is an indication of how highly valued this scholarship is by the architecture community.
