Pantechnicon was built in 1830 as an art and crafts centre (Pantechnicon derives from the Greek words Pan ‘all’ and Techne ‘craft and art’) before being turned into an upmarket warehouse for residents to store finds from their travels around the world. During this time the building’s horse and carriages used to transport furniture were given the name Pantechnicon. And so, Pantechnicon entered the English dictionary, and today the building has been sensitively repurposed to meet the needs of the 21st Century.
