About the Scale Project...

"Investigating everyday objects, details and structures in and around Manchester.
 Be inventive with scale.
 Play with contradictions of proportions, perspective and ratio."

I chose to look at the structures found in Manchester's city centre. I have always quite liked that not many of the buildings in Manchester properly match one another. For example in Exchange Square, there is the glass-fronted Selfridges store, the grade II listed Triangle, and the old half-timbered black and white Sinclairs Oyster Bar; and glass buildings, the big wheel and Manchester's Cathedral all sharing the skyline too. I thought an interesting exploration for this project would be the differences in scale between these old and new buildings.

As a starting point I took photos of Manchester buildings.
