A British construction project of unprecedented ambition, a building site where records were routinely broken, an engineering feat of mind-boggling statistics, a political nightmare. The Millennium Dome was all of these and more.
I was granted access to the site by the New Millennium Experience Company, visiting the North Greenwich peninsula for the first time in October 1996, followed by over one hundred subsequent trips, recording its transformation from toxic wasteland to architectural icon. The book, Superstructure, was the result.
The final picture in the sequence straddles two millennia - two seconds in 1999, two seconds in 2000.
