Madchester is a guide to Manchester inspired by the music scene the city developed in the late 80’s. We had into account the industrial architecture of Manchester and the musical movement that the city was living. Having this in mind, we started the project with the straight and compact forms of the 80’s sound sys- tems to create a landscape of buildings that represent factories, social housing, business and institutions. These images are presented with lyrics of Manchester bands. The aesthetics of the sound systems catalogues and the verticality of buildings were our main reference for the composition of the texts. This project was done with Edisson Zhinin for the workshop by NODE Berlin Oslo at Elisava.
