New destination in Swansea , UK will open to the public in Autumn 2005 

Forming a focus for the regeneration of Swansea’s Maritime Quarter and opening in Autumn 2005, Wilkinson Eyre’s National Waterfront Museum 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.
