A new structure is to be built on site of the original Victorian building, in south east London. It will be the same size and scale as its 1,640ft long and 164ft tall predecessor, which was designed by Joseph Paxton for the 1851 Great Exhibition.

When I saw the title I thought it was about the long demolished glass roofed public toilets in the centre of Bradford. Bitterly disappointed now.
And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death

If its a "replica" then that's all good.Are there any remnant remaing from the original that can be place within this building?
