    Co-Op Building - Manchester - February 2012

    Visited with Gone


    High winds ahoy, shakey tripods and noisy plastic things. A very interesting structure set to the base of Co-Op group once it's finished.

    I only managed a few shots due to the wind, but it was good and the awesome scaffolding structure internally was worth the slog up the stairs.

    'The unusual plan shape, the inefficient curved edges, the vast loss of office space in return for a huge atrium. They are all there to promote the Co-Operative Groups ethos, so has the architectural equation changed in a modern environment, is it now function follows form follows advertisement, perhaps that is all we get from a capitalist society.

    Designers 3DReid have created a somewhat refreshing office block that diverts from the typical glass-cladded box. It looks at sustainability on a larger level and worker friendly environments, parking is limited as the local transport services are the advised use of travel, a vast atrium inside creates an open environment for it’s workers and leads the path for a new style of offices that are less enclosed, and more open.'
