Architecture of Wales

The University of Wales Press presents, in collaboration with the Royal Society of Architects in Wales, a series of books exploring the architecture of Wales. Given the conventional image of Wales as a land of song and poetry, architecture and the visual arts can be easily overlooked. In fact, Wales has a rich built heritage, from the medieval to the modern. Its architectural character is very different from that of the other nations of the British Isles, and it is this very distinctiveness that deserves to be celebrated. Relatively little has been published about the architectural heritage of our nation, despite the fact that buildings and places have been created in Wales that bear comparison with contemporaneous examples elsewhere, produced by architects engaged in the same wider cultural currents and discourse.
