The British School at Rome has reestablished its Faculty of Architecture and is inviting applications for the Rome Scholarship in Architecture and Giles Worsley Rome Fellowship.

The British School at Rome (BSR) has appointed a new Faculty of Architecture after an intermission of 25 years. The reinstated Faculty of Architecture sits alongside the BSR’s faculties of archaeology, history and letters, and fine arts. The faculty members are Allies and Morrison co-founder Bob Allies (chair), Bell Phillips Architects co-founder Tim Bell, Bennetts Associates co-founder Denise Bennetts, Marco Iuliano of the University of Liverpool, Níall McLaughlin Architects director Niall McLaughlin of and the art historian and curator MaryAnne Stevens.

The BSR is now currently seeking applicants for two three-month residencies: the Rome Scholarship in Architecture and the Giles Worsley Rome Fellowship. The Rome Scholarship in Architecture is aimed at early-career architects throughout the Commonwealth, and Giles Worsley Rome Fellowship is for UK architects and historians with a focus on architectural or urban history. Applications for both residencies are open until 29 July and further details can be found on the British School at Rome site.

The BSR is an interdisciplinary research centre founded in 1901 and based at the Edwin Lutyens-designed British Pavilion for the Rome Exhibition of 1911. Architecture was one of the principal disciplines of the school, alongside decorative painting and sculpture.

Bob Allies, Marco Iuliano and MaryAnne Stevens explore the centrality of architecture to the work of the British School at Rome and set out their ambitions for the faculty in an article for the Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain.
