On 29th September 2011 a new visual art’s centre was opened in Colchester. Colchester for those who don’t know is Britain’s oldest recorded town, but wandering around it might not seem it, with a mixture of the old and mostly not so old. And now Rafael Viñoly’s spectacular new arts centre has brought the town kicking and screaming into the 21st century! Its controversial for sure – but then aren’t most public art spaces especially in hard times, but it is a wonderful addition and a great piece of architecture to boot.
