All Along The Watchtower(s) – Reviving Coventry’s Memories

Part 1 Project 2016

Modern day Coventry appears to lack pride and identity. The destruction of the gatehouses epitomises the city’s disconnect with its past. My project revives Coventry’s memories by creating symbolic architecture located on the significant gatehouse sites, to reconnect and pay homage to the city’s past identity. Gatehouses, previously used for defence, are reimagined and renamed as ‘watchtowers’ to emphasise observation. Each watchtower celebrates a memory of Coventry’s rich history.
