Cardiff Cultural Journey – Architecture


The third part of my cultural journey is not a place as such, it is the windows on some of the buildings in town. You have to keep an eye out for them, but as soon as you spot them they are beautifully intricate and detailed. The architecture that accompanies the windows on these buildings is also very detailed, much like that on the Pierhead building in the bay. It makes me want to find every single building like this in Cardiff, because I know each one will be individual and beautiful to draw and create patterns from. I have already done that with a single detail from a house near the National Museum, turning a shape very similar to a flower above the windows into a childish pattern that would possibly be used on children’s clothing or stationery.
