Axis | Albion Street | 93m | 27 fl | U/C

Haven't seen this nice little mid-rise posted anywhere here having trawled through a backlog of threads, apologies if it has been. These images and associated text are from last friday's Architectural Journal, I think it makes quite a decent companion for the nearby Beetham Tower.

"The building facade will incorporate a dramatic light installation via an LED array, making it the largest moving-image screen in the world"

Move over Tokyo!

Beetham's Blade's Crying out for a sponsor now! lol!

But honestly, the blade should at least be illuminated (maybe going thru the colours of the spectrum) it'd look fantastic at night

Thought that stepped out building with the red on one side was going on this plot? Was there a design comp and we have seen two competing schemes??

That's really nice. Its one of the better buildings I've seen. I also wouldn't have thought anything would be build there but if they can put something up there, any spot in the City Centre could have something built on it.

This is the video screen in Tokyo - the one which famously has a dinosaur walking across it in Lost in Translation:

I know which one I'd prefer (and it's not the big red thing).

Perhaps Longvision was onto something...

I second that.

It sounds like thats the type of effect doesn't it? mu mu vision splashed across the entire face, or just the higher levels maybe.

I prefer the 'new' one to the red thing.

Perhaps i should have copyrighted MuMuVision.
You stick with me lads - i'm sure Bearded Genius isnt one for worshipping false prophets but lets face it i am a visionary and, without wanting to sound conceited, bordering on genius.
I am the light and the truth.
Let me hear you say:
MUMU! MUMU! MUMU! MUMU!

Nice render btw

You are indeed the most forward looking heritage nazi around...

All that MUMUing is hurting my eyes - it looks like you're championing the esteemed higher education institution which brought us Steve Coogan, Peter Saville and Mick Hucknell...
