Steel,

Can architecture be ethical? Can the forms and spaces of architecture be used to represent the futility of war and convey the sense of peace?



Daniel Libeskind<br>Imperial War Museum-North, Manchester GB The building, with its steel structure covered with metal panels, was rapidly constructed, has low maintenance costs and is attentive to environmental issues. The Imperial War Museum's formal expressiveness and position in the city will make it a major landmark for the city of Manchester.
This composition and constellation of forms, functions and relationships completes the area in which the project is located with the goal of creating a new centre for the various buildings which surround it.
The Lowry Centre, the Manchester United playing fields and the Manchester Ship Canal and its boats come together in a new way as seen by pedestrians and by those approaching the area by car.
The Imperial War Museum looks different when seen from different sides, and offers new views over the city from its interior, so that the panorama becomes a part of the museum and of the northerners' stories told in it.
