The re-orientation of Wembley Arena

Wembley Arena forms a key part of a massive regeneration of the area surrounding the new Wembley Stadium. This paper gives a brief history of the former Empire Pool, a state of the art reinforced concrete structure when built in 1934, explains its context in relation to the new Wembley Stadium development, and describes how many structural challenges were overcome to enable the major redevelopment of an important listed building.
