For 30 years Len Grant has documented the changing face of Manchester and Salford. Through his photography, writing and, most recently, his sketches, he’s told stories of significant regeneration projects across the cities.
His extensive archive includes the neighbourhood renewal of Hulme, east Manchester and the creation of New Islington. His diverse storytelling extends from showcasing the heroic to giving voice to the most vulnerable.
In over 25 books and exhibitions, Len has told the story of a city shrugging off its industrial past and embracing an industrious future. Now, in Regeneration Manchester, he brings it all together in one volume.
As a practice based in Manchester for over 30 years, we are proud to have been able to sponsor Len's book. Here, Director Andy Avery, sits down with Len to discuss the book, the Manchester's evolution, and Buttress’ role in its regeneration.
