Book Description

22 Nov 2002 Millennium
A photographic record of the architecture and engineering of the Millennium Dome. The book documents the building process of the dome at every stage, from its inspirational inception to its finished state. Specially-commissioned photographs, architectural drawings, maps, plans and computer models are included. Each image is captioned with a date and a brief explanation of the construction process featured. Focusing on the development of the entire Greenwich site, the book examines the ecological transformation of this brown field site and in particular its proximity to the Thames. Details as well as panoramic images convey the scale of the project and a short, incisive introduction traces the development of the building's design, construction and development.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely designed book 10 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This is a nicely designed book, which is in an unusual circular format - and comes in a robust plastic cover (I guess to stop it rolling off your bookshelf!) - and feels like it should cost about twice what it does. It features beautiful photography, interspersed with architectural drawings printed on thinner (tracing?) paper. There is very little text - mainly facts and figures. It doesn't cover any of the content of the dome, just the building itself (which is probably for the best!). Would get 5 stars if it was longer and more text, e.g. explainations from the architects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Innovative Book about an Innovative Building 17 April 2000
By J. Schoenly - Published on Amazon.com
Content aside, this small book is worth buying for the packaging and formatting alone. The entire book is cut into an unusual circular shape and packaged in a matching clear plastic case that flips open -- beautiful! The content of the book is wonderful, too, with concise, descriptive sentences on each page and crisp color photos (both overviews and shots of very specific structural details) throughout. There are even some computer renderings in the middle of the book that are printed on trace paper (or a similar type of paper), unlike the color photos that appear on heavier glossy paper. This title offers a great overview of Rogers' project, from conception to completion, and the unusual style of the book mirrors the grandiosity of the structure itself.
