Gateway House's Mancunian wave

This is Gateway House, which was completed in 1969 and is about to undergo a major refurbishment. Thankfully this modernist architectural statement will be retaining its wavy shape. Its wave is not where this blog gets its name. In case you ever wondered, my blog's name of "Mancunian Wave" comes from:

1) A flyover called the Mancunian Way, two words which could also apertain to a lifestyle or a certain way of doing things.

2) I envisaged a "wave" as in a greeting, a wave as in travelling across the airwaves and cyberspace, and a wave as in a trend.
