Work completed on Fat's BBC Wales studio
Cardiff production centre features “gothic and space age” facade
A BBC TV production centre in Cardiff, Wales featuring a decorative 300m-long facade designed by Fat has been completed.
The building will host filming of BBC shows including Doctor Who and Casualty. It is also the first phase of a major regeneration scheme at the Roath Basin site in Cardiff Bay.
Fat said: “TV studios are an introverted kind of building, so the ultra-decoration is a way of mediating or expressing the worlds that are created within it outwards to the city.
“There are elements of the building which suggest both the fantastical worlds of Dr Who and the everyday aesthetic of Casualty
that are produced within it as well as references to Cardiff’s cityscape.”
