The drive down to Cardiff wasn't exactly ideal, traffic and mixed weather saw to that, but all was restored when I entered the Royal Welsh College for Music and Drama (RWCMD for short) building. Even with the cafe busy with creative students talking and playing music, the buildings subtle curved lines give a sense of calm to the large interior.

The building designed by BFLS (now Flanagan Lawrence) includes a 450 seater auditorium, 180 seater theatre, four rehearsal studios and an exhibition gallery amongst other things, all designed to work acoustically and creatively for the students.
