Merthyr Rising

The 25th anniversary copy of Touchstone 2021, the Journal for Architecture in Wales, features Patrick Hannay’s article ‘Merthyr rising: the master planning of ambition’ which explores the process that has made the twenty-first-century Cyfarthfa Plan.

Merthyr Tydfil and the iron master Crawshay once led the world in iron production. 200 years later it had another very different inspirational plan. The plan was developed collaboratively with the people, especially the youth and children, of Merthyr Tydfil and it’s fulfilment needs their ongoing drive to realise it.
