The Swansea Open House website states that this new £14 million ALEX Design Exchange is home to the University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s award winning School of Industrial Design and Swansea School of Glass. Situated in Swansea’s arts quarter, the recently restored and extended Grade II listed former library is a mix of contemporary and traditional architecture, celebrating its historic position as a seat of learning dating back to 1887. This mixture of new and old continues inside with traditional design techniques and practices taught alongside modern cutting-edge technologies. The building is also home to the £4.7m Institute for Sustainable Design and Cerebra Innovation Centre, two leading research centres in the field of design and innovation.
