Revealed: six-strong shortlist for RSAW Awards 2018

  • Comment

Six buildings, including a house by previous Stirling Prize finalist Loyn & Co, have been shortlisted for the RSAW Welsh Architecture Awards – the first stage of the region’s RIBA Awards 2018

The Royal Society of Architects in Wales (RSAW) has put through two more buildings at this stage than last year, when only four projects made the shortlist for the regional accolades.

In 2017 none of the schemes went on to win national awards. However, Jonathan Adams, chair of the RSAW 2018 jury said he was pleased by the quality of the 11 buildings submitted for the awards this time around. 

He said: ‘It was encouraging to see such a wide range of project types, from small extensions to major education and arts buildings, submitted this year.

’The calibre of the projects was impressive and as a jury we had a tough job narrowing down the entries to produce the 2018 shortlist. Wales can be proud of all of these buildings.’

All shortlisted buildings will be visited by the regional jury, comprising two architects and a non-architect ‘lay assessor’, in the coming weeks, with the winning buildings announced in Cardiff on Thursday 31 May.

Making the regional shortlists is the first step on the long road to the RIBA Stirling Prize. Regional Award winners will be considered for a RIBA National Award, and the successful schemes stand a chance of winning the Stirling Prize.
