The Body Zone


Complex curves for THE BODY ZONE
'Star Attraction' at the Dome

The 27 metre high Body Zone, which promises to be one of the outstanding structures in the Millennium Dome is a body shaped building built in half male and half female form.

Nine storeys high, its skeletal framework comprises a complex series of 120 steel hoops with the tubular members curved to match the body's skin profile.

The Body Zone is just one of a number of Millennium Dome structures which use steel sections and tubes curved by Angle Ring. We have more experience in bending structural steelwork than any other Company and an unrivalled track record on work where accuracy, uniformity and appearance really matter…
