Must have fallen off its blocks in the night, Chris.
Chris: These things happen ole sport..
Lots of lines - good city shot Chris!
Chris: This was a very impressive modern Manchester building Elizabeth
With so few windows, Chris, I hope it's not like a prison inside?
Chris: I have a feeling this might be part of the Imperial War Museum at Salford Quays near Manchester Ginnie. Chad & I did so much on our trip to the north that it's not really possible now to remember everything clearly

an interesting image!
Chris: Don't you love it when the architect plays with out perceptions and perhaps emotions too in this manner Philine. What would have been here before was just derelict docklands
It seems to have fallen over
Chris: Whaddyamean - it's modern architecture!

Had you been imprisoned ..and were looking out on the bright future of the North

No, I know really that this is the thresh hold of the Morth South divide
Chris: You would love the north with its exciting architecture and galleries

Did you ever see the cube houses in Rotterdam?- then you might not be amazed to see this architecture.
Chris: I am hoping my lovely little sister will take me to see them Philine

Good to see you oing a tour of the bars. There appears to have been massive subsidence across the road. Luckily the car seems to have survived and not dragged into the sink hole.
Chris: I refer you to the reply I gave earlier to W J Phillips (no relation) of Droitwich Spa

"Libeskind's Imperial War Museum North in Manchester. A prime example of deconstructivist architecture comprising three fragmented, intersecting curved volumes which symbolise the destruction of war."
Libeskind designed the Felix Nussbaum Museum in Osnabrück nr. Münster and the Jewish Museum in Berlin- grandious!
Chris: Thank you kindly Philine

Looks like you have done a selective colour. That Powerhouse is very grey.
Chris: No selective colour Louis, this is real life
Is this the cage to keep the 'north' in? They will ha e to take that down when HS 2 kicks in.
Chris: They could knit some of this wireage to start HS4 Chad
Have you been imprisoned for knocking a building down?
Chris: Noo - this is modern falling over Mary
An intriguing sight Chris What's going on?
Chris: A new smart building in Manchester Janet
I've got to be honest and say that this sort of architecture is not my thing at all, it would be intriguing to see the other side of that wall just where the floor goes.
Chris: I can assure you the floors were level inside Brian
I wonder if the inside floors are tilted... smile
Chris: No they were straight Larry
The modern architecture is different for your part of the country Chris... it reminds me od the RAF museum where we had our SC meetup a few years ago...petersmile
Chris: Indeed Peter it's the same sort of futuristic design
Looks like a rather unfortunate accident - I trust no one was injured!
Chris: But Tom - this is state of the art modern architecture

Reminds me of the 9/11 museum structure in NYC. Kept my attention a LONG time. So much to view here.
