LIVERPOOL. When They’re Cleaning Windows.

LIVERPOOL. Pier Head, window cleaning.

Down by the Pier Head on Mann Island sits the headquarters of RIBA North, The Royal Institute of British Architects. The building is a brooding mass of black glass and angularity, a Bond villain lair by the Mersey.

Though on the day I walked past the world dominating image was softened a little as they had the 22nd century’s answer to George Formby’s window cleaner in. It’s definitely a job for the cherry picker, your ladder wouldn’t get you far with this acreage of glass. I suppose in these days of self cleaning glas a more likely explaination is some form of maintenance was going on.

The building is also home to the Open Eye Gallery.
