Photographs of National Assembly for Wales

from Richard Rogers Partnership 5 Oct 2006

This is the regional parliament building for Wales, built around the same time as the Scotish Parliament for a lot less money and with slightly less controversy. However the building is much simpler and not as intriguing as the Scottish assembly building. It faces Cardiff Bay and is slightly elevated from the street. The focus of the building are the lovely wood-lined ligthscoops that funnel natural light down to the meeting spaces and chmaber below.

The National Assembly for Wales is dominated by the oversailing timber-clad roof. The roof is beautifully striated with wood boarding and swells up into steep forms not dissimilar to traditional Kent oasthouses.
