"most architectural education is self-taught, not merely by looking at buildings and publications about architecture, but more particularly from analysing WHY we respond favorably to some work, whereas other works (like this image) leave us unmoved or even contemptuous. Just as it's beneficial to ask why one likes someting, its equally so to analyze why something doesn't work."
That's where us students probably learn most, it all depends on how far we want to take it.
"Probably this Salford development was well intended. I imagaine the architects doing the several projects (clearly by different hands) felt confident that they were doing the right thing.
How did it go wrong?"
hmmmmmmmmm.....lots of add ons over the years...:-)
"I suspect the answer, but will leave you to ponder the question."
Probably suspect right. In short it was "a sign of the times"
Think the Arndale in Manchester...:-) and what that and other buildings of this time represent...arghhh! What great team work ;-)
