Event Details

Rural Office for Architecture was established in rural Wales in 2008 by Niall Maxwell, having moved there from London in 2004 to work on the development of Cardigan’s historic port.

The practice classifies itself as regionalists, often working within rural settings, responding to the context and surroundings by reinterpreting the familiar architectural language of the past. Niall has spent the last decade documenting the landscape of Wales as he travels across the country for business, reflecting on the shift in agricultural practice and rural industry.  The practice's output is small with projects often taking years to reach completion, if at all, with much of their work involving strategic consultancy for universities, cultural organisations and heritage bodies.

Selected by the Architecture Foundation in 2015 as one of the best emerging practices in the UK, they were part of the winning design team for the RIBA House of the Year in 2017, a country estate called Caring Wood in Kent.  They are currently working on a range of barn conversions across the UK, three new residences in Wales and a rural dwelling in Japan.


The lecture by Niall Maxell is the tweflth of the ‘Form-Givers’ Lecture Series at The Cass, organised by senior lecturer James Payne. 


The lecture series is about young practices throughout Europe, confident and inventive ‘Form-Givers’ who are delivering their first projects. Lecturers will discuss architectural language and form in their practice, research or teaching.


The talks are free and open to the public. 

If you are a teacher who would like to arrange a group booking for your school or college students, please contact Suman at s.uddin@londonmet.ac.uk.
