Millennium Dome

Millennium Dome storm damage features in today's Dezeen Agenda newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Agenda newsletter features London's Millennium Dome, which was severely damaged during Storm Eunice.

A large section of the fabric roof of the 20,000-capacity venue, which was originally designed by British architect Richard Rogers, was pulled off by the storm, exposing its interior.

Videos and images shared on social media show six panels of the PTFE-coated glass fibre fabric roof ripped away from the structure, which is considered a key example of the high-tech architecture style.

Now called The O2, the 50-metre-high dome is one of the city's most recognised landmarks.
