Installations within St Catherine’s Almshouses

 

GLASS DOORS

 

The work provides an explanation of the history of the buildings and consists of the recreation of the lost doors which would have originally been part of the Almshouses. These take the form of nine free-standing arched doors made of glass sited in the precise location where the original doors would have once been, each encapsulating archaeologists finds from the site. Copied from the medieval designs of the Almshouses, these doors are illuminated to showcase archaeological finds from the site encased within the glass.
