Urban jungle :-)

 

This enormous block, known as the Moorfoot Building (because it is at the foot of a street called The Moor :-)  ) was built for a government department, the Manpower Services Commission.  That Commission was ultimately closed down and for a time other bits of government were located there.  The building was bought by the City Council and now houses departments of local government.

A sort of Huge Cubist Cowpat...I like it, Tom.
Pas très beau ce bâtiment.
i think the b/w treatment was apt for this subject, Tom.
At least it's being used for something... smile

A deadly looking place designed to deaden the senses from the look of your picture Tom
I imagine the design brief was build something as stunningly awful as possible. On that basis they did quite a good job
The word 'grotesque' comes to mind!
I love the foreground here but am not much into buildings.
