Walking in a winter Sunderland

Work on Napper Architects' Sunderland Winter Garden is due to start shortly in a Victorian city-centre park (aj 11.2.99). The 750m2 domed cylindrical temperate glasshouse - in the form of a 14m-high, 18m-diameter drum - houses curved paths sweeping through the building and around plants, and small bridges to take visitors across a narrow internal pond. The glass walls give views of parkland and a nearby museum.
