Think Iíve said before this is not some architectural masterpiece never was going to be, and never should it be.
Err, yes it should, MAN is not only the gateway to Manchester, which as a City is once again aspiring to be a world city with some success, but also the gateway to the whole north of England. This" it's functional, therefore, it'll do" mentality is just accepting of Mediocrity. Look at any form of architecture from behind the iron curtain - they were all functional !!

Just think of how the Victorian Railway pioneers were each building their magnificent grandiose Stations that just shouted Welcome to our city. The new T2 development sadly lacks this ethos.
