London (4)

The layout of the Royal Observatory at Greenwich and its gardens is one of the most interesting public spaces in the London Area. It is a large baroque composition, whose monumentality has been used for many films.

The site facing the Isle of Dogs and Canary Warf, the old dock in which the bananas coming from the Canary islands were once unloaded and today flourishes a huge business area, has brought to this layout a new scenario. The uncertain future of the MIllenium Dome brings some suspense…

The images show the view from the park on the Isle of Dogs (1) towards the Observatory (2) and conversely, the access sequence from the river up to the observatory on the hill (3), and the views from the observatory towards Canary warf (4) and the Millennium Dome (5)
