They built this city on rock’n’roll: architecture on album sleeves – in pictures

The latest exhibition at the Modernist gallery in Manchester started with a dad joke. Designer and producer Andy Votel was DJing when someone requested some house music, to which he retorted: “We’ve got some records with houses on the front.”

The Modernist’s Eddy Rhead asked him to curate a selection of album sleeves featuring architecture from his extensive vinyl collection. “I get as much from a record sleeve as I do from the music,” says Votel. “I didn’t do this exhibition to showcase very rare records with inappropriate price tags – this can exist in any of our collections.”
