The Lowry

The Lowry, Manchester. Set in the regenerated Salford Quays, The Lowry complex consists of two theatres, studio and gallery spaces, a restaurant, and cafes & bars. It is named after the artist L. S. Lowry, known for his paintings of the industrial north of England and is home to the worlds largest collection of his work. Designed by architect Michael Wilford, the building is made up of geometrical shapes – a hexagon, circle, triangle and rectangle. The interior spaces are designed in layers like an onion and decorated with the bright colours that are typical of Wilford’s architecture. It’s a great space, well worth a visit.

    This is what real photography looks like! Love this.

    I remember a couple of Lowry’s in my house growing up, will have to check this out next time I’m up that way!

    Thanks Ben.
