This undergraduate project seeks to repurpose the ruins of a former church into a mini exhibition that displays the work of Sir Christopher Wren in the City of London. A series of spires from Wren’s churches are hung from the pavilion, symbolising their importance as beacons within the medieval streets of the Square Mile. They are displayed along with Wren’s alternative vision for the area, his plan to rebuild following the Great Fire of 1666. The pavilion itself takes its geometry from its proximity to the dome of St Pauls just a short walk away. A construction of weathered steel ribs allows the pavilion to remain open whilst shielding the exhibition from the busy intersection outside.
