I went down to The Lowry last night in Salford Quays (that’s in Manchester, England) with a couple of friends to take some photographs. I went to see Sigur Ros play about a year ago there and didn’t really get a chance to look around. This time I did and I couldn’t believe how many cool buildings and structures there are around – amazing! These are just the blinds on the back of the theatre:
It’s great to see a place like Manchester embracing art instead of just throwing up more anonymous, identical grey buildings. There was more eye-catching architecture within the square mile we were standing in than the whole of a city like Leeds. It almost made me wish I was an architect!
