A unique and inspiring location
We recently had the privilege of carrying out a photo shoot in the Alan Turing building at The University of Manchester.
The wonderful building houses the School of Mathematics as well asÂ theÂ Photon Science InstituteÂ and theÂ Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics.
The building was named after one of the facultyâ€™s most prestigious alumni, Alan Turing. Mr Turing was a Reader in Mathematics at the University and is regarded as one of the founders of computer science.
His legacy is being instrumental in assuring the enduring freedom of the western world during WWII, by cracking the Enigma Code. The code was considered unbreakable and some of the allied forces leading brains had failed to crack it. Mr Turing was successful and being able to decode our enemyâ€™s communications, brought the beginning of the end of WWII.
