The Plymouth Architectural Trust was founded in 1972, replacing the Plymouth Branch of the former Devon & Cornwall Society of Architects. The Trust is a registered charity and membership is open to all who are interested in architecture and the built environment.


The Trust’s area of concern is centred on Plymouth but includes the greater part of Dartmoor and part of South Hams, bordered by the Tamar, the Dart and the A30. The Trust seeks to promote a debate about the quality of our surroundings – existing and proposed – and provide a series of events that includes lectures, debates, exhibitions and visits to interesting buildings and other projects. Although locally based, we are also interested in the wider aspects of architecture, conservation and place making – both historically and for the future.


The Trust supports architectural charities and architectural education. We make donations to the Architects’ Benevolent Society and contribute to prizes and Travel Scholarships at the School of Architecture Design & Environment at the University of Plymouth.


The Trust is governed by a Constitution with trustees and is run by a small Executive Committee. The Committee meetings are open to all members and members are encouraged to suggest events and activities. An Annual General Meeting is held in June.
