Artist's Description

Please see large.
St Paul’s dome is the only cathedral dome in Britain. It raises unmistakable above the buildings of the north bank of river Thames with its 354 feet height. The cathedral was commissioned after the Great fire destroyed the original in 1666. It was designed by Sir Christopher Wren by mixing classical and Gothic styles. St Paul’s dome is the second in size only to St Peter’s in Rome. The cathedral celebrated its 300th anniversary in 2008.

The millennium bridge was opened in 2010 as London’s first new Thames crossing in more than 100 years. It is 1050 feet long and 13 feet high and was designed by the Sir Norman Foster. The bridge uses “lateral suspension” – an engineering innovation that allows suspension bridges to be built without tall supporting columns.
On the first day of its opening tens of thousands of pedestrians crossed the bridge which caused a worrying wobble and had to be temporarily closed. The wobble was later explained by a phenomenon called "troops breaking step’ which is based on a theory involving vertical, as well as the lateral movement.
