The Lowry Theatre, Salford

The Theatre foyer faces the public plaza, and this photograph shows the large aerofoil canopy at the entrance clad with perforated steel and, as seen, this is illuminated from inside at night. Much of the building is clad in stainless steel and glass.


The Lowry Project was completed in 1999 at a cost of 106 million pounds. The Lowry name was adopted in honour of the local 20th century artist, L. S. Lowry. The complex was officially opened on 12 October 2000 by Queen Elizabeth II.
