Ian Simpson Architecture's Urbis building, the £30 million Lottery-funded exhibition space in Manchester, is close to completion. The six-storey centre in the 'Millennium Quarter'of the city (created after the 1996 IRA bombing) will celebrate the experience of urban living. The 8,000m 2building is clad in pre-patinated copper and green glass. A top-floor restaurant will provide panoramic views across the city.
