Named after the first manned mission to the moon in 1969 - the year the structure was built - the Apollo Pavilion is an iconic example of 1960s public art.
The stucture was designed by the artist Victor Pasmore and marked the culmination of his work as consulting director of urban design with Peterlee development corporation. The Pavilion has undergone major restoration in 2009.
