Sir: Nobody seems to have pointed out that unlike St Paul's or the Dome of Discovery, the proposed Greenwich erection is not a dome at all in the structural sense of the word. It is in fact a tent-like arrangement of light-weight supports suspended from masts and covered in plastic sheet to simulate the appearance of a dome. There is a symbolic significance there that I can't quite put my finger on.
