Wales Millennium Centre

The Wales Millennium Centre, in Cardiff Bay, Wales, presents a variety of theater, dance and music performances, exhibits and educational programs.

The steel plates on the face of the building carry an inscription written by poet Gwyneth Lewis:
Creu Gwir Fel Gwydr O Ffwrnais Awen / In These Stones Horizons Sing.

Constructed from the inside out to give priority to the acoustical needs of the performance spaces, the structure was designed by Capita Percy Thomas architects and opened in 2004. During the day, light shines through the words to illuminate the interior spaces.
