Criticism of Coventry visitor centre rebutted I was very surprised by Tom La Dell's criticism of the landscape design which provides the setting for our visitor centre in the Coventry. The scheme by Robert Rummey Associates works really well. The creation of the cloister, at 20m 2, produces an intense yet serene space directly relating to the ground floor of the building, as a visit to the site will surely show.

The use of materials is relevant and subdued considering the three-dimensional complexities involved. The pleached limes are not a cliche: they are a clear geometric and ecclesiastical reference to the remains of the cloister of the original priory, directly under the site.
