Reliquary of Teeth

This project is a Reliquary of Teeth set inside Canterbury's city wall. Canterbury is well known for the Pilgrims' Way of Thomas Becket and the design concept is based on the idea of venerating bits of the Saint’s body. The thesis explores the themes of religion and science by having a sacred tower to store milk teeth and a laboratory with adaptive reuse of existing building to achieve the collectivism idea in Gothic.
