Royal Observatory, Greenwich

Also part of the Royal Observatory is this exciting small project by the architects I'm currently working for - Allies and Morrison Architects.This strange looking truncated cone houses a new planetarium and aligns itself to the Meridian line.

These are some of the reasons why I think this is a really interesting project -
*Sensitivity towards the listed heritage buildings around *The simplicity and abstraction of its form
* the way it shapes and uses the landscape around it
