Panopticons The Atom, Wycoller Country Park

info_outlineInformation in English

Panopticons is an arts and regeneration project of the East Lancashire Environmental Arts Network managed by Mid Pennine Arts. It involved the construction of series of 21st-century landmarks, or Panopticons (structures providing a comprehensive view), across East Lancashire, England, as symbols of the renaissance of the area.

Set in the landscape of Pendle, the Atom was designed by Peter Meacock with Katarina Novomestska of Peter Meacock Projects. It was launched by Mayor of Pendle, Councillor George Adams with Anthony Wilson and designer Peter Meacock on 2006-09-22. The bronze-coated GRC (Glass Reinforced Concrete) structure provides both a striking contemporary viewing point and shelter from which to enjoy the stunning surrounding landscape, and an intriguing and beautiful object.
