Originally designed by Sir William Chambers and completed in 1762 as a birthday gift for Princess Augusta, the restoration of The Great Pagoda, in the Royal Botanic Gardens, in Kew, London, is a story of lost dragons and architecture rediscovered. Its twisting tale takes us from cultural artefacts and Chinoiserie, to computers and laser sintering.
David Millar, Director and Head of Conservation at Austin-Smith:Lord, shares more about this project to restore the Pagoda to its 18th century splendour, including the reinstatement of 80 missing carved and highly decorated dragons, where 18th century craft meets 21st century tech.
