FaulknerBrowns reveals plans for Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon

FaulknerBrowns has released its masterplan for the Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay, the world’s first, manmade, energy-generating lagoon, which includes a water sports centre and oyster hatchery

According to the practice, the main 4,000m² building was inspired by ‘traditional fishing warehouses and boat houses’.

The centre will include operational and maintenance facilities, boat storage, changing areas, a greenhouse for algae cultivation and an oyster hatchery.

Mike Hall of FaulknerBrowns said: ‘The project is a great opportunity to harness the infrastructure of green energy production for the social benefits of recreational watersports activities.’

The scheme forms part of the masterplan for the lagoon area drawn up by LDA Design, which also features a visitor centre designed by London-based Juice Architects.

The man-made Swansea Bay energy-generating tidal lagoon will provide enough electricity to power 70 per cent of Swansea Bay’s annual domestic electricity use.
