Urban regeneration (and public art) in Coventry have made an impressive mark via the Phoenix Initiative, masterplanned by Richard MacCormac, which has won many plaudits since it opened earlier this year. But all is not rosy for Coventry council. Its well-visited transport museum, which faces the major space in the MacCormac scheme, turns out to be full of asbestos. To ensure no public danger, the council is paying £1,500 a week for hourly monitoring of levels inside the building. It looks as though it won't be possible to seal it in, so substantial construction bills will soon be piling up?
