A new centre for Manchester
Manchester is to have a new international convention centre by the end of the year 2000. Sheppard Robson and Stephenson/Bell were appointed by the city council after a competitive interview and fee bid. The centre, which is on a sloping triangular site, has been designed to connect with the surrounding buildings and streets, and to take into account the fact that a 14-storey office block is to be built immediately to the south of the site.
