Buildings in Wales

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Welsh Buildings. We aim to include buildings that are either of top quality or interesting.

We cover completed buildings, new building designs and architecture competitions across Wales. The focus is on contemporary Welsh buildings.

We have 3 pages of Welsh Architecture selections.
