Chair of jury: Dominic Williams Regional representative: Jonathan Adams Lay assessor: Steven Rose

NATIONAL ASSEMBLY FOR WALES Richard Rogers Partnership Client: National Assembly for Wales This exceptional public building - with its excellent environmental credentials - was delivered within a design-and-build contract. It is already popular and clearly works on the many levels intended by the designers, with visual connections linking context to the assembly processes, all reiterated by a condent and open internal organisation.

£41 million. 5,030m 2

NATIONAL WATERFRONT MUSEUM Wilkinson Eyre Architects Client: National Waterfront Museum, Swansea In this project, the architect has engaged with the site's unique historic placing in Swansea's docks, retaining the warehouse as a series of controlled exhibition spaces, and forming a new contrasting open gallery building that follows the arc of the original railway tracks in a series of interlocking stages. New and old are then linked seamlessly by a foyer space.

£15 million. 6,080m 2
