Hear from one of the founders of Urban Splash as they give a guided tour of the exhibition telling the wider story of the award-winning projects that are highlighted.  It Will Never Work is an unplanned trip from Madchester to Brexit via Easyjet and driverless cars, with a quick history of unorthodox thinking and a few buildings along the way.

Urban Splash profess to have started without a plan, purposefully ignoring advice and routinely rejecting accepted development processes. At every step ‘it will never work’ has been a call to action rather than a discouragement.

In this exhibition we explore RIBA Award-winning projects, in the context they were created and against the specific challenges and opportunities of the day.
