The new Special Exhibition Gallery at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester

Quote:
November 2016

The new Special Exhibition Gallery at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester has been granted planning permission. The project comprises the refurbishment and adaptation of a Grade I listed railway station, warehouse and Grade II listed railway viaduct, with the addition of a new temporary exhibitions gallery and public entrance hall. These improvements will allow the Museum to create and bring world-class science exhibitions to Manchester.

Part of the Science Museum Group, The Museum of Science and Industry is situated on the site of the world's oldest surviving passenger railway station. The Museum is a globally important heritage site comprising some of the most important buildings of the modern industrial age.

New render released of Trinity Islands:
It looks like the podium is now designed to create an active street wall rather than the tower-in-a-park concept. Exactly the type of design outcome I like to see.

Yep agreed. In Rotterdam it's local planning policy that all buildings must have a podium which defines the street boundary, I think Manchester/London should adopt something similar.

To be fair it's not like the developers would protest - defining the street boundary means they get to develop as much of the site as possible

Haha exactly. Another city that's done a great job with this is Brisbane. A number of their new developments incorporate subtropical greenery at the base along with retail and laneways.

Podiums?

Centre City Tower in Birmingham is on a podium ..... not sure many people like these buildings? This one is from the early 1970's.

Good point - very fine line between badly-designed podiums which don't integrate well with the street, and well designed ones which do.

The trick behind a good podium is to not make it look as though there's a huge skyscraper lopped on top.

But sometimes I love a good skyscraper than you can see all the way up from the street?

Slightly off topic.

Don't forget to add another 10-15 towers in the next 5-10 years in your imagination while watching the video's.

Stick with this one. First Street car park. Been up there many times.



The next 2 are quality.

Manchester's future skyline

I've updated my skyline model to reflect Trinity Tower 1 - which at 203m will be Manchester's tallest building, shooting past the U/C 200.5m Owen St Tower 1.

Some shots:
