Grade II listing for Edinburgh Sport Dome, Malvern

  • Comment

‘Incredibly special’ Edinburgh Sports Dome in Malvern listed at Grade II on the advice of English Heritage

Roger Bowdler, English Heritage Head of Designation, said ‘Malvern’s Edinburgh Sports Dome is an incredibly special building. The Bini Dome (or Parashell) roof shows that Malvern was at the cutting-edge of international architecture in the 1970s. Its method of construction is rare internationally and unique in this country. It’s an elegant, successful, functional and thoroughly considered building that represents its period very well. It’s also remarkably intact.’ 

The Dome, which has the only surviving example in the UK of a domed Parashell roof, was built in 1977 and opened in 1978 by the Duke of Edinburgh. To create the building, architect Michael Godwin, with John Faber of Oscar Faber and Partners as consultant engineer, successfully advanced Dr Dante Bini’s innovative design for the ‘Bini Dome’.
