Manchester Civil Justice Centre

Crazy cube architecture in Manchester, England....It was designed by Australian architects Denton Corker Marshall with engineers Mott MacDonald. It is rumoured that designer Barrie Marshall sketched the entire building by hand and that very little has deviated from his original drawings. On the western side is an 11,000 m² suspended glass wall; the largest in Europe.

 

The same design team, incorporating Denton Corker Marshall and Mott MacDonald, are currently in the process of designing a sister court building in Birmingham, England, known as Birmingham Magistrates' Court.
