opening today is aberystwyth arts centre, designed by UK firm heatherwick studio,
the architectural commission will provide much needed studio and workshop space
for arts organisations in wales.

striking in design the simple timber‐frame buildings are clad with a bespoke crinkled
stainless steel system that creates a shimmering futuristic appearance, reflecting
the greenery of the site. the special cladding system was fabricated on site using
a contraption similar to a victorian mangle that deformed the steel into its irregular form.
the studios sit within woodland, and over time will blend further into the maturing
landscape around them.
