AIR ARCHITECTURE
Mission Gallery, Gloucester Place, Swansea

A conversion of the old seamen's chapel in Swansea dock to an art and craft gallery expresses the boat-like roof interior.

The entrance, a glazed infill of an old opening, is glazed, with Portland stone and bronze inserts, based on the transformation of a cross (in mapping terminology) to other geometric mutations.

Bronze cherubs mark the entrance, where an outline of Dibutade emphasises one of the mythological sources of drawing and painting.
