Will Alsop has come up with a characteristically cheeky design for a newspaper stand in Allied London’s £1.5bn Spinningfields development in Manchester

Designed to look like an open newspaper, Alsop’s design lends a touch of the surreal to the corporate surroundings of the city’s newest business district. The architect will work with structural engineer Atelier One and project manager Drivers Jonas to build the kiosk in Hardman Square, the scheme’s main business plaza. Alsop has also designed a fruit stand and a flower stand for Spinningfields.
