The Manchester Unity Building



The Manchester Unity Building (1932) located on the north-west corner of the intersection of Collins Street and Swanston Street. by Marcus Barlow

I love this building. It's a marvelous skyscraper. It's not too hard to find an information. but the confused information is....the style of this building. Some say " it's an art deco skyscraper " Some say " it's a Neo-Gothic skyscaper " And then I checked with the Victorian Heritage Database. It's a Neo-Gothic !

You are right. It is a beautiful building. Your composition and treatment of the image are wonderful. Love the "Neo Gothic" style.

I wouldn't know neo-gothic from neolithic, but I do like the building - a lot. I also like the treatment you gave the photo, doing it in b&w and keeping the red. Very effective!

It's my favourite building too Boom. It's wonderful how Melbourne protects and keeps so many stunning old buildings.
