Gallery, Architecture centre
An archived collection of opinion columns written by Phil Griffin in City Life magazine from 1997 onwards. Each discusses a different aspect of the built environment around Manchester, from Manchester United FC Stadium to Urbis to the chandeliers in Manchester Airport.
"The pieces are about moving through the city over time. They invite you to 'look more slowly.'"
