PORTICO: City Walls Trail, Chester
PORTICO is an EU-funded partnership between the cities of Chester, Ghent, Cologne and Utrecht in co-operation with the Initiatief Domplein Foundation. Each city has a rich archaeological heritage and PORTICO’s aim is to make this more accessible to everyone through new techniques and approaches.
We were appointed as Architect to lead a team looking at how the ancient City Walls could become the focus for a greater understanding and appreciation of Chester’s history and archaeology. Through comprehensive consultation and teamwork we developed a masterplan for enhancing the visitor offer and we identified a number of key projects for implementation under PORTICO.
