A day celebrating the role of Welsh architects.

Includes a Breakfast Talk and Round Table Discussion, and Afternoon Student Workshop, and an Evening Exhibition.

For the third year running Pensaer is holding an architectural event for Wales Week London. As in 2023 they will be holding an evening exhibition (7.00pm - 11.00pm), showcasing the work of Welsh architects, who have a link to the capital.

Taking place in the main Florence Hall at The RIBA. We will also be joined by artists from First of March, with an installation by Ruth Petersen.


Architecture and Craft - 10.00am - 12.00pm

Around the theme of 'architecture and craft', we will explore the work of Welsh architects and artists, and how they work together. Starting with a 15-minute meet-and-greet at 10.00am.

We will have five speakers, and a chair to organise discussion. Each speaker will present for 10-15 minutes. Following this will be a discussion between the chair and speakers, then followed by a Q+A session from attendees.

The outcome of the event will be a better understanding around the topic, and an opportunity to share knowledge.


Model Making Skills / Vignettes - 2.00pm - 5.00pm

This will be a student engagement event, with a two-hour workshop / sketch design output; preceding it will be a 15-minute brief, with a 45-minute review at the end.

The output will be 3D-sketch models, which will go into the evening exhibition.


7.00pm - 11.00pm

The evening exhibition will showcase the work of Welsh architects and artists. We will have a 10-minute introduction at 7.30pm. The introduction will include the launch of the RSAW manifesto.

The evening is open to all.
