Rodney Gordon / Owen Luder: Tricorn Centre, ?–1966

  • Portsmouth, Great Britain, Show on map
  • #COM #Megastructure #Western Europe
  • A shop and market centre built on a series of concrete decks surrounding a central plaza: ground level, pedestrians and retail shops; first deck, wholesale market; second deck, parking. The structures above the second deck - flats, multistorey parking, lift towers, a department store, a hotel and a night club - were arranged to give the complex a science fictional skyline. Special thanks to Susan Butcher.

  • Demolished in 2004.
