09.07.2020

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) is delighted to offer congratulations to lecturer Gavin Traylor from the Wales Institute of Science and Art (WISA) on his recent appointment as President Elect for the Royal Society of Architects in Wales.

Gavin Traylor from the Wales Institute of Science and Art (WISA) has been appointed President Elect for the Royal Society of Architects in Wales.

Gavin, a lecturer at UWTSD’s School of Architecture and Built Environment Sector, is now president elect of the Royal Society of Architects in Wales (RSAW), the Welsh national branch of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). He will take up the post as president elect in September 2020 and subsequently a two year term as RSAW President 2021-23. Amongst numerous other duties he will chair RSAW council meetings and preside over the Annual Conference and Spring School.

As RSAW President Gavin will automatically take a position as one of the two Welsh representatives attending the RIBA Council committee meetings in London.

The RIBA is governed by council members, elected from among the RIBA membership, the majority of whom are chartered architects. Chaired by the RIBA president, the council meets four times annually and is ultimately responsible for the conduct and development of the Institute. The council passes down detailed responsibility and technical focus to the RIBA Board and main committees.

Gavin said: “‘I feel incredibly honoured to have the opportunity to represent all architects in Wales. Part of my election manifesto aimed to promote the links between academia and professional practice. Working at UWTSD places me in a unique position and am looking forward to engaging with both students and practitioners to shape the future of the profession and construction industry as a whole.”
