Crystal Palace to be rebuilt

Crystal Palace in London is to be rebuilt. Plans and images have been unveiled that show how Crystal Palace will look when it is rebuilt as a modern day cultural attraction.

The original Crystal Palace was destroyed by fire in 1936. The massive iron and glass structure was originally erected in Hyde Park, London, to house the Great Exhibition of 1851. More than 14,000 exhibitors from around the world gathered to see the latest technology.
