Charles Barry : Houses of Parliament

Large Victorian Gothic Building

The old Palace of Westminster existed from the time of Edward the Confessor.

The building contains London landmark, Big Ben.

Manchester Royal Institution – now City Art Gallery, Mosley Street, Manchester, England
Date built: 1823
Manchester Art Gallery, formerly Manchester City Art Gallery, is a publicly owned art museum on Mosley St. The main gallery premises were built for a learned society in 1823 and today its collection occupies three connected buildings, two of which were designed by this architect. Both Barry’s buildings are listed. The building that links them was designed by Hopkins Architects following an architectural design competition managed by RIBA Competitions. It opened in 2002 following a major renovation and expansion project undertaken by the art gallery.
