Illustrated in my style of Subtractionism, to cut back on the detail and retain essential elements of the building – whilst drawing the illustration it started to remind me of a 1970’s Stereogram, I wonder if the Architect had that in mind when he designed it? Another element to my work is to make a visual record of the lost, demolished and forgotten buildings in, and around Manchester.

New Broadcasting House (NBH) was the BBC’s North West England headquarters on Oxford Road in Manchester city centre. The studios housed BBC Manchester, BBC North, BBC North West, the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and the BBC Religion and Ethics department.

Architect: R.A. Sparks from the BBC’s Architectural and Civil Engineering Department.
