The Dome is located at the end of the Greenwich Peninsula in South East London. It was to hold an exhibition to celebrate the 3rd millennium from 1st January to 31st December 2000. The project and exhibition was subject of considerable controversy as it failed to attract the number of visitors anticipated with recurring financial problems. The project cost was about GBP 800 million.

The original exhibition and associated complex have since been demolished but the Dome still exists and is the key feature of the O2 Arena.

The O2 Arena was the phoenix emerging from the debris of the Millennium experience. It has been transformed to an entertainment district which includes an indoor arena (with a capacity of about 20,000 people), a music club, multi-screen cinema with bars and restaurants. The most important point of the O2 Arena is that it has become an extremely successful entertainment hub for London with regular performances of major artists from all parts of the world.

So, what has made the difference from the feng shui perspective?

In the original Millennium Dome, the land was undeveloped and the energy (red arrow on left) from the river could flow directly to the Dome (left side). But as the river flowed away from the Dome, it also pulled away energy from the Dome (red arrow on the right).

As there was no settled energy at the Millennium Dome, the project did not work.

The Changes with the O2 Arena

With the O2 Arena, they have constructed new buildings (marked A; see lower image) and this impedes the outflow of the energy. In other words, the buildings (marked A) holds the energy around the O2 Arena.

Buildings marked “A“ stop the outflow of the energy at the O2 Arena.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The main difference in the exteriors between the Millennium Dome and the O2 Arena is the presence of the buildings. These buildings are vital to the holding of the energy at the site.

This is the difference between success and failure – the holding of energy at the site.
