Corridor Manchester.

New 3D model flythrough.

Keep an eye out for Circle Square towards the end of the flythrough, amongst other buildings, developments and proposals.

The MECD and Circle Square stand out somewhat....I mean, look at that fly through snapshot above: the MECD looks wider than the entire Circle Square site.

Nice video. I didn't realise there were so many 'knowledge assets' in Manchester. Great news for the city. The only problem I have with the video (and lots like it, mind) is the use of such similar colours for differentiation. Maybe it's just slight colourblindness but why not have strong greens, reds, and blues instead of pastel blue, pink, and purple?

What's next, 'in the off eggshell blue we have the university, then in the blueish white the college, and finally in turquoise the heritage centre...'

I'm colour blind and I was completely lost watching the video, I agree that stronger colours would be better as pastels are difficult to differentiate between.

I'm not colour blind and I was fairly lost, to be fair.

I think the cladding on the new building is a bit of a nod to Art Nouveau. It's a shame it isn't done a bit better but I imagine it would have been very expensive. It does go well with the older building, it must be said.

Agreed. Pastel colours weren't great. Especially if you don't really know Manchester or the buildings.
