NOTES: The double-height atrium, central to the TV-am building, was designed on an east-west axis to reflect the path of the sun. To the east, the green room was modelled on a Japanese temple, and the grand central staircase on a Mesopotamian ziggurat. Passing under a bridge in the form of a Classical temple and through a Mediterranean garden, the atrium ends at its most westerly point in a desert landscape. Clive Wilkinson led on all the interior designs.
