SJ8398 : Hardman Square, Manchester

taken 7 years ago, near to Manchester, Great Britain

Hardman Square, Manchester
Hardman Square, Manchester
Part of a large development, 'Spinningfields', begun around 2007, and not yet finished. When the developers, Allied London Properties, encountered choppy financial waters, the scheme was reputedly bailed out by the city council. The two prominent blocks here were designed by Foster & Partners no less. They're the best of a largely mediocre job (perhaps because they seem to hark back a few decades), although to be fair the creation of a public space is not to be sniffed at.
