The Welsh School of Architecture Collection - Treasures From Our Archive

The Welsh School of Architecture Collection consists of drawn student project work, with some supporting photographs, produced by trainee architects at the School in Cardiff, from the early 1960s until the late 1980s. Numbering approximately 5,000 individual items, the collection embraces detailed architectural surveys of all types of building, from civic and domestic structures to religious or industrial sites. About three quarters of the buildings depicted are in Wales, though some are elsewhere in the UK, and several are overseas, from Norway to Malaysia, reflecting the international composition of the student body and the worldwide significance of this Welsh institution.
