Gloucester Viewing Canopy

Urban & transport

A competition-winning viewing canopy in Gloucester’s Eastgate street which improves the public presence of the city’s oldest surviving Roman and medieval ruins by providing a place to contemplate the archaeological remains. The design features a reflecting wall which allows people a better view of what lies beneath. Councillor Martyn White, who holds the cabinet on the city council said “this is a very exciting concept and will transform the presentation of the monument and the appearance of the street with an extremely attractive means of displaying historic remains”.
