Network Photographers for New Millennium Experience

01 January, 1998

The focus of British celebration of the new millennium is a dome in the southeast London suburb of Greenwich, on the prime meridian. Exactly 365m in diameter, to echo the days of the year, and supported by 12 towers, to reflect the hours on a clock face, it was built on wasteland that first had to be detoxified. The dome itself is a vast artificial sky of stretched fabric.
