NOTES: The three bronze columns called 'Points of View' that mark the entrance to the Olympic complex at Piazza d'Armi in Turin, were designed by the British-born sculptor Tony Cragg in 2005. The multi-purpose indoor sports/concert arena was designed by Arata Isozaki and opened in 2005. It served as one of the venues for the 2006 Winter Olympics, hosting the ice hockey events. The Art Deco Torre Maratona was built to signal the municipal stadium, built in the 1930s.
NOTES: Stevenage was designated as England's first New Town in 1946, followed by the other London orbital developments of Basildon, Harlow, Hemel Hempstead and Bracknell. The development of the New Towns, built after World War II to ease overcrowding in London, was overseen by Lewis Silkin, 1st Baron Silkin (1888-1972), the Minister for Town and Country Planning from 1945 to 1950. Leonard Vincent was the Chief Architect responsible for the town centre.
NOTES: The snack bar was on the ground floor, with the grill on the first floor. The door on the right hand side leads to the Monseigneur Restaurant at 215 Piccadilly, situated in a double-height basement.
NOTES: The Westminster Theatre, formerly the St James's Picture Theatre, was established on this site in 1931. The building, originally the eighteenth century Charlotte Chapel, was converted into an arts centre in 1966 to designs by John & Sylvia Reid. A two-storey office extension by the same architects was added above the theatre in 1973. The complex was destroyed by fire in 2002.
