The University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) wishes to select a multi-disciplinary design team to deliver design services for their proposed project Canolfan S4C: Yr Egin, Carmarthen.
Canolfan S4C Yr Egin Background
Several interested parties were invited in 2013 to submit applications to the S4C Authority to work in partnership with them to develop a new headquarters that would allow, as creative partners, opportunities to work closer and maximise the investment in all cultural and community endeavours across Wales.
Following a competitive bidding process, the S4C Authority confirmed in March 2014 that the Channel's headquarters would be relocating to the Carmarthen Campus of UWTSD in January 2018.
The headquarters will be housed within an iconic and contemporary developed building which will be home to a creative and cultural community that will be known as Canolfan S4C: Yr Egin. This is an ambitious and innovative concept.
The basis of the scheme is to establish a multidisciplinary, entrepreneurial and creative exchange that will attempt to extend creative boundaries. It will be a totally unique development in the UK and will operate within a creative and sustainable eco-system. It is intended that the development will have a significant effect on the economy of the region and beyond, on the Welsh language and its' use in an area where maintaining the viability of traditional Welsh language communities is a policy priority, and on the culture linked to the language that has always been a rich characteristic of this area of Wales.
Canolfan S4C: Yr Egin is an exciting and innovative development. It will become a haven of creativity and an organic creative community that will be based on cooperation and the co-location of ideas and skills.
The exchange will be a home to some 25 related companies and institutions. It will be a centre where people, connections, ideas and talents are able to stimulate one another.
