Imperial War Museum

Daniel Libeskind's £30 million Imperial War Museum North in Manchester is now complete. It represents three shards of a shattered globe symbolising conflict on land, air and water. The earth shard contains exhibition galleries, an administration block and main entrance area; the water shard houses a restaurant; while the 55m high air shard offers panoramic views across the city. It will open to the public on 5 July.
