Patrick O’Keeffe is the British School at Rome Worsley Fellow, 2017-18

Stage 5 student Patrick O’Keeffe has been awarded the 2017 British School at Rome Giles Worsley Fellowship. The Fellowship was inaugurated in honour of Giles Worsley, the distinguished historian of neo-classical architecture, and offers an opportunity for outstanding young architects and architectural historians to experience and learn from the architecture of Rome and to contribute to the lively scholarly atmosphere of the School.

Patrick’s research will look at the use of musical harmony as a means of investigating and interpreting architectural harmony in Renaissance Rome. He will travel to Rome for three months from October 2017.

‘I am delighted to have been offered this fantastic opportunity to pursue my research in Rome with the support of the Worsley family and the British School at Rome’, Patrick said.

Patrick is the second KSA MArch student to win a major national award.  In 2014 Keith Diplock joined a select handful of students from the Architectural Association, the Royal College of Art and the Bartlett as the winner of an RIBAWren Insurance Association Scholarship.
