"It Will Never Work"
by Urban Splash
Our book “It Will Never Work” is a review of the first 25 years of 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 our philosophy and aims to distill our thinking into a manifesto for successful and sustainable futures for our towns and cities.
For Urban Splash “It Will Never Work” is something we have heard many times, and has always been a call to action rather than a discouragement. It was the obvious title for the touring exhibition we collaborated on with the RIBA, and for this book exploring 25 years of our successful urban regeneration projects.
