Arthur House Manchester

Arthur House, Manchester is a seven storey commercial office block by Architect W A  Gibbon of architectural practice of Cruickshank & Seward, who had visited Brasilia and was inspired by Oscar Niemeier. Gibbons championed the use of pure white concrete in his Manchester buildings. It was constructed in 1963....

...however, it was the stick-man sculpture of climbers scaling the building which caught my eye as I walked down Chorlton Street.
