This is the story of an astonishing transformation as Wales entered the twenty-first century embracing a new democratic direction. The Senedd, designed by architect Richard Rogers, rose as the country’s distinctive ultramodern forum, the expression of the people’s voices and diversity. Now available in this new compact edition, Senedd documents the rise of Cardiff as a city and place of government through to the concepts, challenges and final achievements of the Senedd building itself, superbly photographed by Andrew Molyneux. Trevor Fishlock’s rigorously researched account provides an extensive background, highlighting not only the unique design of the building and the process of its completion but also the even greater significance of what it continues to represent for Wales. The book also includes a conversation conducted by Fishlock with the late architect Richard Rogers and firm partner Ivan Harbour on their vision for the project and its execution.
Trevor Fishlock is a writer and broadcaster who was staff correspondent of The Times in India, and New York and Moscow bureau chief for The Daily Telegraph. He has worked on assignment in more than sixty countries and has published widely.
