University of Bangor - Pontio Building Shortlisted for RIBA Welsh Architecture Awards 2018
The University 'To Bridge'
Deriving from the Welsh verb meaning 'to bridge', the Pontio building located within the University of Bangor is a magnificent addition to the varied cultural life at the higher education facility. Bridge, being a relative word for the building as it stunningly joins onto three buildings somehow. The link between city and university homes a performing arts auditorium, cinema, rehearsal studio and an experimental 'haptic' environment with multiple areas even available to the public.
