Welcome to Wintonia
It imagines the historical city of Winchester as a new destination for heritage as the UK seeks to recover economically from both the impacts of the coronavirus and Brexit. Prior legislative shackles are removed and the old city wall resurrected as a giant looping hotel to cope with the increased tourism demand. The wall is pierced only by six gates located on the site of the original historic gates controlling access to the treasures within. The project seeks to raise greater questions about heritage – to what extent should we be dutiful and to what extent can we be brutal?
