Wales (RSAW)

The Royal Society of Architects in Wales/Cymdeithas Frenhinol Penseiri yng Nghymru (RSAW) is the voice of the RIBA in Wales.
As part of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the RSAW champions better buildings, communities and the environment through architecture and our members.


Covering a large geographic area from our base in Cardiff, we provide support for members through CPD, Spring School and our annual conference.

We recognise outstanding architecture through the RIBA Awards and the Welsh Architecture Awards, and we support the National Eisteddfod of Wales with the delivery of the Eisteddfod Architecture Medal and student scholarship.

Our core programme is complemented by local events organised by volunteer members in branches throughout Wales.
