Aldine House, Chapel Street, Salford
Aldine House, Chapel Street, Salford
Striking office complex which looked to me like the sort of building a 1970s film director would have used for a film set in some crazy, futuristic year like 2001. In plan it is composed of three roughly-L-shaped blocks, one of which (on the left) is detached from the others. Built of white concrete with "funnel-like windows" (SJ8398 : Detail of Aldine House, Chapel Street, Salford), apart from the black granite pavilion in the foreground. By Leach, Rhodes & Walker, 1967.
It appears to have recently been given the Bruntwood treatment (ubiquitous local property developers).
In the fore-foreground is the River Irwell.
