We saw an increase in entries submitted in Wales this year across a wider range of project types than recently. This is surely a good sign, with schemes from smaller scaled and highly bespoke domestic projects with big-thinking approaches, to highly complex and large scale education, office and arts centre developments. The shortlisted buildings provided evidence that the RIBA’s increasing drive to foster a responsible and sustainable agenda is being taken seriously in Wales. Budget restraints continue to be a challenge, with many architects achieving outstanding value in delivery for their clients.
