Apollo Pavilion Sculpture

The ‘Apollo Pavilion’, also known as the ‘Pasmore Pavilion’, is a controversial piece of public art in the new town of Peterlee designed by British artist and architect Victor Pasmore It was built between 1963 and 1970 using concrete, cast in situ, and was originally part art-work, part footbridge. After restoration in 2009, access to the upper platform is now controlled by a gate to try to prevent the abuse that has haunted the structure through much of its life.
