New destination in Swansea officially opened to public 

Forming a focus for the regeneration of Swansea’s Maritime Quarter, Wilkinson Eyre’s National Waterfront Museum opened to the public on 17 October 2005. The project includes the renovation of an existing Grade II listed warehouse building and the creation of new galleries to house objects telling the story of Wales’ industrial and maritime past. There is a powerful narrative to the design, which is inspired by the unique history and context of the site. The curves of old railway tracks running across the site offered a strong sense of movement, and their lines have been reinstated into the new buildings and landscape in abstract form.
