The Royal Observatory of Greenwich is part of the Greenwich world heritage site and is situated on a hill in Greenwich Park, overlooking the River Thames. It is an ensemble of listed historic buildings and at the heart of it is a bronze clad cone shaped building located which houses the new planetarium. This small but impressive project by London based architects - Allies and Morrison - uses its abstract form to carefully insert itself into an otherwise highly contested historic site. Besides housing some new educational/exhibition facilities the project also upgrades the southern portion of the Royal Observatory site and reconfigures its landscape.
