We are delighted to invite you to the following event in association with RIBA during the forthcoming Heritage Open Days weekend:

TOMORROW VERSUS YESTERDAY is a 2-hour walking tour of Coventry’s most exemplary Modernist buildings to explore their historic significance in shaping Coventry as a ‘future city’ and their role in inspiring the 10 City Arcadia artistic projects taking place between now and June next year.

The walk is hosted by City Arcadia curators Laura Elliott & Michael Mayhew with Aya Dibsi.

Aya is an Architect interested in art, art history and the symbolism of buildings. She qualified at the Budapest University of Engineering & Economics and the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Aleppo, Syria. Before arriving in the UK, Aya worked in several architectural planning, design and consultation offices, contributing to interior and exterior design of old and new buildings.

During the walk, Dossier #3 Looking & Seeing by urban planner David Rudlin will be launched.
