3D Systems help bring the Great Pagoda back to life
If a building has been around for 256 years, there is a chance it isn’t going to look as good as it originally did. This is certainly the case with the Great Pagoda in the middle of Kew Gardens, which was originally built for Princess Augusta back in 1762. But last year the Historic Royal Palaces (HRP) implemented a restoration project for the 72 dragons that originally adorned the roofs.
