Description

Giles Worsley FellowshipThe Giles Worsley Fellowship is awarded for the study of architectural history. It is open to architectural historians and architects whose research in the field or architectural or urban history would benefit from the opportunity to spend three months at the BSR experiencing the reality of buildings and spaces in and around Rome which are related directly or indirectly to their subject of study. While the research carried out at the BSR may be part of a wider project, the intention is that it should be brought together and presented at the end of the Fellowship as a discrete piece of work.Selection for this Fellowship is by a panel formed of representatives of the RIBA, the British School at Rome and the Worsley family. Applications will also be reviewed by members of the BSR’s Architecture Advisory Committee.Giles Worsley, the distinguished architectural historian and critic, died of cancer in 2006 at the age of 44. He was an enthusiastic visitor to Italy and a great believer in the importance of Italian architecture of all periods in understanding the development of Western architecture. He was concerned that universities do not give adequate emphasis to the teaching of architectural history and that architectural historians should be encouraged to experience the reality of influential Italian buildings.The award was an unforgettable experience that gave me the opportunity to challenge my creative output. My time in Rome, exploring both scholarly and artistic processes, was really the stepping stone for me to test what this meant to me more specifically. Being surrounded by incredibly talented scholars and artists at the BSR, and having the opportunity to learn from them, I felt privileged to be somewhere in-between.Mariam Gulamhussein (Giles Worsley Fellow 2019–20)For: architectural historians and architectsOpen to: those of British nationality, and those who have been living and studying for at least the last three years in the UK (i.e. since May 2018)Duration: three months (January–March 2022) (these dates may be subject to change as we assess the ever-changing situation regarding COVID-19)Research grant:  £700 per monthFurther details are available by clicking here, and the application form here.
