Description

The Millennium Dome, colloquially referred to simply as The Dome, is the original name of a large dome-shaped building, originally used to house the Millennium Experience, a major exhibition celebrating the beginning of the third millennium. Located in East London's gritty Docklands region on the banks of the River Thames, the white, 80,000-square-meter, tent-like structure — designed by famed architect Richard Rogers — is one of the few manmade objects visible from space. London's “Millennium Dome,” first proposed by John Major's Conservative government, was supposed to unite the nation on the eve of the new century. But it was a failure. Yet, the refurbished Dome has become a hot destination. Now redubbed the O2 — after the mobile telecommunications operator paying $12 million a year for naming rights — and centered around a newly built, 20,000 seat arena, the O2 has quickly established itself as London's hippest concert venue. The dome is one of the largest of its type[clarification needed] in the world. Externally, it appears as a large white marquee with twelve 100 m-high yellow support towers, one for each month of the year, or each hour of the clock face, representing the role played by Greenwich Mean Time.
