Coventry Phoenix Initiative
The Coventry Phoenix Initiative is an ambitious plan by the City Council to regenerate the area around the Cathedral and the periphery of the city centre. The winning masterplanning proposal, from architects MacCormac Jamieson Prichard, included a commitment to an integral role for artists working with the design team to draw meaning from the refurbished historic and new urban spaces. Seven artists and a writer were subsequently selected to make works within the design scheme. The project was completed and launched in December 2003.
