Arthur House, Chorlton Street, Manchester
A white concrete building in Manchester? It has to be the work of Cruickshank & Seward. This was built in 1962. Miraculously, the concrete has not been painted over or clad in primary-coloured panels. There are textured effects on the near sections created by thin vertical indentations, apparently randomly spaced.
Note the playful bit of modern art on the left - two metal stick-men climbing the building under the watchful gaze of a third resting his laurels at the top. I say men, but neuter would be more accurate.
As ever, office space to let at the time of the photo.
