Royal Ascot Racecourse has hosted horse racing since 1711. Between September 2004 and June 2006, a £200m tubular steel and glass grandstand was built to accommodate the 30,000 visitors that the course welcomes during the five days of Royal Ascot week.

The roof to the Galleria, which runs throughout the structure, is curved to follow the profile of the hill that the course sits on.  Due to the building built on a slope, each of the 54 steel pillars supporting the structure are unique in design.  Louvres in the lightweight steel and glass roof ventilates the atrium or Galleria. The 10,000 sq m of glass provide light to the interior | Architecture Photographers London
