Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

The Unique Architecture of the Imperial War Museum North

Imperial War Museum North (sometimes referred to as IWM North) is a museum in the Metropolitan Borough of Trafford in Greater Manchester, England. One of five branches of the Imperial War Museum, it opened in 2002. The museum's architecture, an example of the modern "Deconstructionist" style has been controversial since it's opening. This video, however, takes a very positive position on the design,  arguing that it makes sense for a war museum and enhances the experience for visitors.
