More Architecture Than You Can Shake A Stick At

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!

  1. Wow that really is quite impressive, As I was reading I saw the pic out the corner of my eye and thought it had failed to load properly, (you know how imagages occasionally do that thing where it fills the frame with a 20×1 rectangle of itself all the way down), keep in mind, I am drunk at the moment 😀

    then I looked at it properly, looks really cool.

    I think the only thing nearly that cool in Perth would be the burswood dome, which isnt really that coold
