1 Angel Square: Len Grant

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

1 Angel Square is the new home for one of the UK’s most recognised brands, and one of Manchester’s most valued employers.

This dramatic addition to the city’s skyline is already a multi-award-winning structure, boasting more environmentally-friendly features than any of its size in Europe.

Combining text and photographs, Len Grant has documented this iconic new building throughout its construction. He has interviewed the project team, from clients through to architects, engineers and builders, and created a striking pictorial record of The Co-operative Group’s new head office in Manchester’s new NOMA district.

Axis was also commissioned to produce a special commemorative box for the book, which was then presented to Her Majesty at the official visit and opening of the building on 14 November 2013.

The Queen certainly looks pleased to receive her special Len Grant book. The second in her collection, as she was presented with a previous Axis / Len Grant collaboration at the Commonwealth Games – The Mancunian Way, Clinamen Press.
