   schema:description "The design of the cathedral - a building which symbolised both past traditions and future aspirations - is discussed in the context of the wider debates of the day on architecture and reconstruction. The project to build a new cathedral at Coventry is related to those at Guildford and Liverpool and also to the great church-building schemes of post-war Europe."@en ;

   schema:description ". Louise Campbell discusses Basil Spence's developing design - and its transformation into a cathedral building - in relation to the fast pace of artistic developments in the 1950s and 60s. She analyses the different priorities of the architectural profession, the clergy, and the city; her book provides a study in the history of patronage as well as of architecture."@en ;
