Crowning Glory?

Westminster Abbey has ambitious plans for the 21st century, including a corona - an architectural feature shaped like the Imperial State Crown or St Edward's Crown - above the Lantern Roof.

I always assumed that the Abbey was finished; nevertheless, these plans are intriguing. I am not hugely enthusiastic about the corona atop St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh, so I'd like to see a few drawings or drafts for the proposals at the Abbey before further comment. I imagine I'd support the idea in principle though.

The Dean of Westminster, the Very Rev John Hall, is the driving force behind the plans. Dr Hall has been Dean for two and a half years.
