The Gate design is inspired from St John's Gate, Oxford designed by Wendy Ramshaw. It has a lens that captures the building in the background from the park side, and the park from St John's side. Ken Jakobi and I drew up the plans and ruoted out the gate on formply; and then we (mainly Ken) set about building it.
