RSAW opens Welsh terrace ideas contest
[Submissions deadline 12 November] The Royal Society of Architects in Wales has launched an ideas competition for the low carbon future of Welsh terraced streets
Open to designers and architects, the competition seeks proposals exploring a balance between Welsh architectural heritage and the drive for low energy demand homes.
The contest is supported by the Welsh Government, CADW, RCT Homes and Grŵp Gwalia Cyf.
The winning competition, announced on 13 December, will be adopted by RCT Homes with a view to developing and building the design on an appropriate site in Wales.
RSAW president Andrew Sutton said: ‘This competition is looking at the very real challenges of balancing our built heritage with our sustainability goals on a myriad of small sites across Wales that are key to local communities.
‘With Welsh Government’s support, we hope to demonstrate the creative thinking that architects can bring to this challenge ahead of further debates at our annual conference in December. It’s especially exciting that the competition has a Registered Social Landlord on board that will consider taking the winning scheme beyond a design concept, and I am really looking forward to seeing the entries.’
The deadline for submissions of entries is 12 November
