    MSS Building, Manchester – October 2011

    Visited with sho, fishbrain and Millhouse.

    The Maths and Social Sciences Building was built in 1968, as part of the UMIST campus. Constructed from reinforced concrete and designed by architects Cruikshank and Seward it is the tallest building on the former UMIST campus.

    It was built on the site of cramped terraced housing that accommodated factory workers that was studied by Friedrich Engels in his book The Condition of the Working Class in England in 1844 in which he acknowledged Manchester with these kind and colourful words...

    I am forced to admit that Manchester is black enough to convey a true impression of the filth, ruin, and uninhabitableness, the defiance of all considerations of cleanliness, ventilation, and health which characterise the construction of this single district. And such a district exists in the heart of the second city of England, the first manufacturing city of the world. If any one wishes to see in how little space a human being can move, how little air - and such air! - he can breathe, how little of civilisation he may share and yet live, it is only necessary to travel hither

    ...All of which is still true but largely irrelevant to this report :p

    These pics are noisy because I was rendered tripodless by a can’t-be-arsed-to-carry-stuff attitude.

    Was good catching up with everyone, big shouts to Millhouse for bringing the necessary 'accessories' and showing us some other stuff.

    Afterwards we decided to go for a quiet pint – where we moshed to live metal bands alongside girls with blood pouring from their mouths.

    Thanks for viewing,
