Firstsite

Yesterday I had a sneaky peek tour around the new Firstsite building in Colchester. I was really excited as I'd heard lots about the planning and building in the last couple of years so was really intrigued as to how it would be. I was astounding by the size and presence the space has. The outside structure is pretty amazing, the curved D shape of the building is to symbolize a Roman Centurian's helmet. I loved the way that the designer had incoporated links to Colchester and the exact history of the site. I think it's going to be an incredible thing for Essex and I can't wait to visit properly in September when its finished.



Can't say I really enjoyed wearing the hardhat and hi-vis jacket - it did not go with my Cath Kidston!
