Coventry is a post-war redeveloped city. Many buildings stand as the remains of the WW2 bombings. Hence, other than the statues and the surviving buildings, the state has a definite possibility of being represented through a memorial space. As per the Coventry city plan, the city is structurally divided into three main sectors. I propose to utilize the space between these sectors as a possible area of development. The space will share the characteristic features of all three sectors, encapsulating the essence and intimacy of the city and thereby creating an identity of its own by enacting it as a new catalyst for the city. This new catalyst stands as a space that can be made productive for the city. This ultimately brings to my idea of a community hub. The community hub can be a single building or part of an extension of an existing building. Hence, I propose to convert a space into a community hub.
