« Rome Prize in Architecture
“A unique experience, architecturally, intellectually and socially” (Bob Allies, Rome Scholar in Architecture 1981-2)
The prestigious Rome Prize in Architecture is an exciting opportunity for a young architect to spend three or six months in Rome, and be a member of a vibrant residential community of architects, artists and researchers. It provides an extraordinary opportunity to study the contemporary architecture of Rome, as well as its historic context. It offers accommodation in a residential studio and board, for three or six months (although preference may be given to a candidate requesting six months), a research grant, a group exhibition each three months, and participation in a range of interdisciplinary activities, including a vibrant architecture programme.
