In 2014, Sheffield-based photographer and graphic designer Dave Mullen Jr started Geometry Club, a collaborative Instagram project in which people submit images of buildings forming carefully composed triangle shapes. Mullen is now creating an app to simplify the meticulous formatting process, and says the project is “a test of building an audience based on curating the same thing”.

 

The account has attracted more than 25,000 followers and welcomes contributions by professional and amateur photographers. And the first rule of Geometry Club is to make contributions – and here’s one of my contributions, it’s the Wolfson Centre for Bioengineering at Strathclyde University, built 1970-71, and designed by architects Morris & Steedman.

 

It is, of course, a prime leading example of pure Scottish Brutalisim of the era, consisting of 5-storeys of very distinctive full-height ribbed chevron-shaped white reinforced-concrete cladding panels.

  • Nice composition for the project and I love the tonal range throughout the image. Not sure whether I like the bright spot or not but it seems to work in the image....

    • Not much we can do about the "bright spot" - its one of the overhead lights around the building.
