From the 10 entries submitted, the six shortlisted buildings in Wales this year are:

All shortlisted buildings will be visited by the regional jury, comprising two architects and a non-architect ‘lay assessor’, in the coming weeks, with the winning buildings announced on 28 April. Winners of Welsh Architecture Awards will be considered for a RIBA National Award, which will be announced in June. The shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize for the best building of the year will be drawn from the RIBA National Award-winning buildings later in the year.
