Ian Simpson wins Manchester millennium gallery

  • Comment

The international competition for a twenty-firstcentury gallery celebrating the millennium has been won by Ian Simpson Architects.

The £28 million URBIS centre in Manchester, which forms part of the rebuilding work after the 1996 IRA bomb blast, will be of opaque and transparent glass and include a simulator of vertical travel. The centre will celebrate the history and future of Manchester in relation to other worldwide cities. It is part of the larger £41.7 million Millennium Quarter.

Manchester Millennium, a council, business and government task force, is overseeing the project. It will be funded through the Millennium Fund, Europe and business.
