Description

"It Will Never Work" is a review of the first 25 years of award-winning regeneration company Urban Splash, set against the wider context of the socio-political climate and the particular challenges of the day. It explores cross-cutting themes that represent the philosophy of the company and aims to distill this thinking into a manifesto for successful and sustainable futures for our towns and cities. Manchester-based Urban Splash has won an unprecedented 53 RIBA awards for design and architecture while creating successful and liveable new neighbourhoods and communities across the UK. What has Urban Splash got right that so many others have got wrong? What lessons have they learned along the way? "It Will Never Work" provides an insight into the workings of an innovative development company, it is instructional as well as beautiful with high production values and richly illustrated text. The book contains a foreword by the Observer's Architecture columnist, Deyan Sudjic, and citations by the past eight Presidents of the RIBA, including architect, politician and former Mayor of Bristol George Ferguson.
