Works starts on new Stonehenge Visitor Centre 20 years after first mooted

Comment

Perhaps I should explain... There is something about this site that destroys any attempt to make a piece of architecture that means anything, and DCM's latest scheme looks to me like the kind of visitor centre that could be more or less anywhere. The practice's previous scheme, with its curved excavations, seemed to have something more to do with the site: a history of digging in the ground to discover our past. Simplistically, this new scheme is 'pods with a table on top' - a pattern book response to a visitor centre. It will certainly be forgettable, but I think that's a shame and a rather low aspiration for a building this important. And expensive.
