Manchester - A Generic City? is a photography book focusing on architectural photography of Manchester in order to explore the idea of The Generic City (an idea proposed by Rem Koolhaas), and to what extent Manchester has come to meet the criteria for this. There has been a dramatic increase in the presence of postmodernist architecture within the city, due to a range of influences in the wake of globalisation, but there still remains a huge presence of architecture which references the city’s role in the industrial age. In a city where buildings of both eras stand prominently next to each other, are they competing visually, or is this a complementary relationship?
