London Coventry is a blueprint for how industry can play a productive role in the future of mixed-use development and an antidote to the monoculture of urban peripheries.

Remixing edge and centre, luxury and popular, mobility and comfort, emerging manufacturing techniques sample the post-war city to create a poly-centric aerotropolis edge-city structured by a series of industry-enticing ‘enterprise zone market crosses’.

With emerging manufacturing techniques come new and difficult labour and social relations. As people’s behaviours alter through the inception of autonomous travel, and Coventry modifies its relationship with London, tensions begin to arise and are played out through the project.
