Building Of An Icon: 2005 – 2008

Starting a couple of years I go, I decided to follow the construction of various buildings in Manchester. Manchester is a growing city now, ever since the IRA bomb in 1996, and Beetham Tower, AKA the Hilton has to stand as one of the most prominent examples of this.

November 2005

Unfortunatly, I did start this project until the tower was well underway, but this is the first real image that I have. All these pictures are available on Flickr.

This was taken with my Vivitar 3765,  F. 2.9

Errecting an Icon

December 2005, the outer skin has been completed on the lower floors, and now the upper levels are well underway.

Skinned Tower

Still in late December 2005, this beautiful clear day provides the perfect lighting to show the construction of the floors. After the outer skin has been fitted, the more extensive work of fitting out the interior can begin.
