Overview

"Scenically and architecturally, Nottingham is one of the most remarkable of English cities. A major commercial centre in the Middle Ages, it subsequently became an important industrial city until well into the twentieth century, when the traditional industries collapsed. Now a city in transition, Nottingham is making its name in the twenty-first century as a centre for business, with service industries, apartments, shops, bars and restaurants colonizing the former palaces of industry and generating a wave of exciting new design." This book records more than two decades of regeneration and change, and looks forward to the future redevelopment of key parts of the city. With a foreword by fashion designer Sir Paul Smith, who started his business in Nottingham, and illustrated throughout with photographs by Nottingham-based architectural photographer Martine Hamilton Knight, this study provides insights for architects, planners, students and anyone interested in the recent transformation of Britain's cities.
