About this blog
The London Road Gateway Project Bath aims to improve the public realm of the stretch of London Road, between Cleveland Place junction, and Morrisons Supermarket.
Jane collaborated with Alan Summers and Karen Hoy of Call of the Page, formerly known as 'With Words', to work with the community, gathering local history and stories as words, with haiku and renga poems, which have informed her resulting designs.

Haiku and Renga
Some of the designs directly contain a haiku poem from one of the informal roving workshops, others contain part of the Renga poem created at a drop in 'Renga Party' workshop.
This design is based on a complete haiku poem and reminds us that there is wildlife in the area despite the busy road and pays homage to the distinctive green copper roofs of the Snow Hill flats, which are perhaps loved and loathed by people in equal measure!

I HEAR THE OWLS ABOVE
