Proposal for the replacement of St Nicholas’ Church in Radford, Coventry (circa 1950).

St Nicholas’ Church was destroyed by the Luftwaffe in World War II and various proposals were drawn up for its replacement, including this one designed by Arcon. It included reinforced concrete ribs with a glass sweeping roof over the nave. The final design retained the curved roof and sloping sides but incorporated it into a downsized, less-daring design.
