There is an opportunity to create a destination at the WY'R DDRAIG site, at once
both local and international. Landscape provides the medium for spatial clarity when
viewing the landmark and integrates the site into the local landscape pattern language

WY'R DDRAIG 'The Dragon's Egg'
Impressed by the beauty of the expansive, flat landscape of the Second Severn Crossing site, we have chosen a form
that would sympathetically harmonise with the natural character of the estuary, but would also be an icon for a nation.
Our proposal is a Dragon's Egg as the seed of the imagination, containing all that has gone before and all that will
follow, a mythical symbol to celebrate the rebirth and re-emergence of an ancient country.
