New building projects are continually proposed in Manchester. We often focus on the spaces, places and developments that are seen to be the most successful, but there is a lot to learn from projects that have falied to meet our expectations. In this roundtable discussion, we will provide a constructive critique of three recent and iconic projects, and suggest ways they could have been realised differently.

Your Views and Feedback:

The three ‘failed icons’ presented were Castlefield, Oxford Road Corridor and The Arndale Centre.
