Welsh School of Architecture student exhibition 2022
The 2022 WSA student exhibition is a celebration of a year of outstanding hard work from students at both Bachelors and Masters level.
This year the exhibition takes a step back from the 'final images' of architectural design in order to bring you closer to the variety of design processes and interim outputs that inform our students' final proposals. Explore, interrogate, and learn how quick initial sketches become elaborate illustrations, how traced drawings become rendered 3D models, and how tectonic inspirations become constructional details.
