IMG_3369IMG_0257Latest view of our emerging new building

It was great to have the opportunity this week of going back up on the roof of the student halls of residence on Denmark Road – and thank you to the staff there for being so obliging during this very busy time of the year – and seeing our emerging new building. The whole Whitworth footprint really has now taken on a new shape. The old, rather miserable, west facing facade is now wrapped around with the Promenade on two levels, while the staff facilities, Study Room and Landscape Gallery backing onto the road are fully formed; the next stage here will be the brickwork that will cover the concrete. On the park side, the Learning Studio and Cafe in the Trees are also clearly defined as they project out amongst the trees.

I’ve added in a couple of earlier views to remind everyone how far the building has developed since ISG arrived on site last November – don’t forget to also check out ISG’s own blog at: http://transformingwhitworth.com/blog/

The Gallery is now closed to the public while ISG move in to complete refurbishment of sections of the original building, but that doesn’t mean that Gallery staff or programmes of activity have taken a back seat. More information about what we are all up to will continue to be posted here, but also follow the Gallery on twitter (https://twitter.com/whitworthart) and keep an eye on our website (http://www.whitworth.manchester.ac.uk).
