Swansea’s concrete dragon

Summer’s Concrete Quarterly, which my company Wordmule produces for UBM and the Concrete Centre, told the story of the 13th Maggie’s Centre, just open in Swansea. These buildings are notable both for the quality and warmth of the care they provide to cancer patients, and the list of internationally renowned “starchitects” queueing up to design them. The Swansea centre was conceived by Japanese legend Kisho Kurokawa,  before he died in 2007, who imagined a swirling, dragon-tailed “cosmic whirlpool”. Now project architect Garbers & James has brought his napkin sketch to life, moulded from concrete and studded with titanium panels. Read all about how they did it here.
