Architect wanted for one of Wales's 'most prestigious' design projects

Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod is inviting proposals for one of Wales' 'most prestigious' design projects in the next few years.

The Eisteddfod Royal International Pavilion is to undergo a major regeneration, and the foundation is hoping for the 'right architect, with experience in producing iconic buildings, capable of creating acoustic excellence.'

The Eisteddfod has applied to the National Lottery for part of its funding, and although the budget is up in the air, it is thought the figure could be between £17 and £32 million.

'It will be a major project, and we will need the right partners to deliver what we hope to be one of the most prestigious and iconic buildings in Wales,' said Arwell Staples of Denbighshire county council.

'It will be a complete regeneration of the pavilion and its surrounding buildings. We will also be looking at building bridges over the canal and the River Dee, so it really is a massive undertaking. The Llangollen pavilion is a great tourist attraction so we will be looking for the partner to deliver.'

For more information please contact Royal International Pavilion Chief Executive Gwyn Williams on 01978 862000.
