At Lord's exists a tradition of patronage of innovative structures. The objective of the design was to respect and savour the essential nature of Lord's while bringing to it a building that will herald the coming millennium and provide the most elegant and state-of-the-art media centre in the world. The NatWest Media Centre at Lord's is one of the most innovative buildings this century. It's the first all aluminium semi-monococque building in the world and represents a breakthrough, not just in the creation of a new 3D aesthetic but in its method of construction. This building was built and fitted out not by the construction industry but by a boatyard, using the very latest advances in boat building technology. The aerodynamic contours reflect the sweep of the plan of the Ground with the enclosing skin formed by a smooth, white, seamless shell. The west facing glazing is inclined to avoid any glare or reflections while providing unobstructed views of the game for the world's media.
