Luke Petty, a third-year student at Manchester School of Architecture, produced this concept for an advertising agency containing subsidised studios next to Manchester's Bridgewater canal.He divided the elements into sun-seeking and shade-tolerant spaces (such as darkroom studios being shade-tolerant and a cafe being sun-seeking), and placed them in two long narrow blocks formed as a result of the programme requirements. Cor-ten cladding is used for the shade block to represent the decay of the industry in the area, and polished-steel cladding on the sun-seeking block to represent new developments.
