Description - Place: A Story of Modelmaking by Terry Farrell

As one of the world's foremost urban designers, architect Terry Farrell has an acute awareness of the significance of place. Starting from his earliest years, as a child growing up in 1940s Manchester, Farrell's imagination has been shaped and inspired by the many cities in which he has lived, visited and worked. This is Farrell's story, embracing four decades of observation of our built environment. Farrell's anecdotes, recollections and musings take a nomadic journey through time and space.

Projects include the now listed Blackwall Tunnel Ventilation Towers and Park Road flats, the Student Hostel and Clifton Nurseries and housing and factory designs. Concluding the book are recollections from archite
