Dome and Domer: The Increasingly Stupid Story of the Millennium Dome
Ships in 6-8 business days.
(HARDBACK EDITION) This is a story of honest mistakes, bad design, hubris, stupidity, greed, corruption -- but above all, it’s a tale of something so monumentally awful that it takes on a sort of soggy grandeur. It's the story of the Dome, a World’s-Fair-like exposition in London, created to celebrate Britain and the new millennium. It was a disaster from start to finish, and almost everything that happened was funny. Designers of amusement parks and expositions can read "Dome and Domer" as a sort of "How-Not-To" guidebook. Everyone else can just sit back and enjoy reading about something going gradually and completely wrong.
