This fantastic building on the waterfront in Cardiff bay is a centre for the performing arts..... the big letters on the front of the building are windows that let light through the facade into the main public bar of the theatre.
According to Wikipedia, Welsh poet Gwyneth Lewis wrote the words which read "Creu Gwir fel gwydr o ffwrnais awen" in Welsh (translated as "Creating truth like glass from the furnace of inspiration") and ""In These Stones Horizons Sing" in English. I don't speak Welsh unfortunately so can't tell you if the translation is poetically accurate......maybe it's lost something. If you speak Welsh I'd love to hear your opinion!
There's a photo of the inside of this building tomorrow showing this dramatic space.
