Neville Gabie notes in the book,

“Yes it’s true, Boro have never won a major Trophy, but walking around the estate and speaking to supporters you realise very quickly that the real prize here are the fans. I always wanted to mark the fans part in what made Ayresome special and the only proper place to do that was the Holgate End.”

About Neville Gabie

Neville’s website describes his practice as,

“Neville Gabie’s practice has always been driven by working in response to specific locations or situations caught in a moment of change. Highly urbanized or distantly remote, his work is a response to the vulnerability of place. Gabie’s interest is in establishing a working relationship within a particular community as a means of considering its physical, cultural or emotional geography.”
