Manchester Civil Justice Centre

Here at ADOmedia, we really love a bit of innovative design. From art to architecture, we can’t get enough! We often spend time gazing, slack jawed upwards at the amazing buildings that we encounter on our travels.

One such building lies smack bang in the heart of our fine city of Manchester. The Civil Justice centre is the largest court building to be built in the UK since the Royal Courts of Justice. The working courts and offices are expressed as rectilinear forms, articulated at each floor level.

We are always expecting these large jutting blocks to move around, they look as if they should slide into place to suit the movements of the sun. Unfortunately, they don’t. However, the building remains as a fantastic architectural feature of the city and yet another great source of design inspiration.
