Making the Lowry

Front Cover
Lowry Press, 2000 - Art - 176 pages
The Lowry is one of Britain's twelve landmark projects for the Millennium, and is commonly regarded as a triumph of civic will and enterprise.

In his perceptive and highly readable narrative, Jeremy Myerson describes the process of the creation of this complex and important project. The book is fully illustrated with archival material, designs, and drawings, and the exceptional photography of Len Grant. It presents the workings of a fascinating process: the creation - from scratch - of a true landmark that will for many years come to act as a major catalyst in the process of urban renewal, and as a major cultural venue.
