Greenwich Millennium Pavilions

8 August 1996 - 22 September 1996

Richard Rogers and Imagination would soon unveil their masterplan for the Millennium Festival at Greenwich. The Meridian line runs through the site and the design - which eventually resulted in the Millennium Dome - was expected to include a park, laid out in the form of a clock face with pavilions located at the hours. In anticipation of the event, the RIBA Journal invited 25 British practices to dream up designs for the pavilions. Designs ranged from potent symbols of incipient ecological disaster, a glass panelled 'People's Palace', pleasure gardens, concert bowls, video screens of the countryside and natural phenomena, and a 60m 'Book of Time' tower.
