C.A.T.Visit - First Impressions

Just returned from a day-trip to the Centre for Alternative Technology near Machynlleth, organised by the Design Commission for Wales.

It was my first visit to this amazing place, located in an old slate quarry halfway up a mountain in mid Wales. It is a stunning setting for a place that is a torchbearer for sustainable design in the UK. The new WISE building by Pat Borer and David Lea takes a quantum leap forward for CAT in terms of the scale and ambition of building on the site.

More posts to follow with some thoughts, images and video of this fantastic building.
