Cardiff is set to welcome another landmark piece of architecture to its cityscape after proposals were approved yesterday for a stylish new university teaching centre. The new state-of-the-art postgraduate centre at Colum Drive, Cathays Park, will feature an elliptical Harvard-style lecture theatre as its centrepiece. The exterior finish includes a five-colour, vertically stacked terracotta rainscreen cladding, along with buff brick, curtain walling and powder-coated aluminium doors and windows. The Cardiff Business School development will be constructed using an environmentally beneficial twin skin system, with developers aiming to reach a BREEAM rating of “excellent’ for sustainability. A source at local sales and marketing company A Vision Network said, “I’m really looking forward to seeing the centre opened. It will be a beautiful addition to city, as well as a fantastic resource for business students.”
Mae Jemison has achieved more in her fifty-five years on Planet Earth than most people can hope to achieve in their entire lifetime. Not only does she hold the unique distinction of being the first African-American woman to venture into space, she is also a dancer, has appeared in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation and holds nine honorary doctorates in science, engineering and the humanities. Small wonder, then, that this former NASA astronaut has been selected to lead a foundation that is destined to take humanity to the stars.
It was supposed to be an homage to ‘The City That Never Sleeps’, but now it seems that Cardiff’s big plans for a Big Apple makeover will have to be toned down for a more realistic, if not so exciting scheme. Cardiff’s waterfront was to be lined with New York-style high rise apartment blocks and offices until plans were axed as the extent of damage done by the credit crunch became clear. Now a more modest £200m proposal will be built instead.
Over the past 12 months, staff and shoppers at St David's Dewi Sant in Cardiff have raised a staggering £14,287 for Marie Curie Cancer Care, the centre's Charity of the Year. Throughout the year, numerous fundraising events were held in the shopping centre, the highlight of which was the Great Daffodil Appeal, part of Marie Curie's nationwide scheme to get everyone wearing a daffodil in March in support of the charity's nurses. Managing Director of A Vision Network, a sales and marketing company based in Cardiff said, “For one Shopping Centre in Cardiff, raising over £14,000 is amazing, especially in 12 months.”
