Discovering Wales’ post-war architectural delights

Virtual Hatch! Discovering Wales’ post-war architectural delights
Thursday 1st June 5-7pm

June’s Hatch meeting clashes with the start of the Champions League Final in Cardiff, so we are going virtual!  This means you can join in from wherever you are, so please mark the date and time in your diary.

Good post-war architecture and design in Wales, as with the rest of the UK, is often overlooked, and many examples have been forgotten or demolished. This month, we are setting Hatch the challenge of hunting out the best examples in Wales so we can highlight their design quality.  Whether it’s a beautiful Brutalist building or a Modernist feat of engineering, we want to know about it – so get exploring!

Between 5pm and 7pm on Thursday 1st June we want you to Tweet us as many examples of good post-war architecture and design in Wales and you can.  You can Tweet us photos and a description or a link to a website.  If you don’t use Twitter, please email us your discoveries in advance and we’ll Tweet them for you.  We want to create a bit of a buzz about this, so please try to stick to the timings.  We will add all the examples to this Pinboard:
