RIBA opens new local architecture centre in Manchester

Manchester Building Centre

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is opening the first ever RIBA Hub in Manchester; a flexible city centre space offering a dedicated area for architects, students and those with an interest in architectural design to meet, collaborate and learn. The RIBA Hub which is located at 113-115 Portland Street, at the entrance of CUBE, the Manchester Architecture Centre, will open on Thursday 12 May 2011.

RIBA Hub, Manchester’s new local centre for architecture, will feature an exhibition space, café, specialist bookshop stocking a selection of the latest RIBA architectural books and magazines, and a meeting space. The RIBA Hub will also be an important centre for delivering seminars and CPD courses to RIBA members and allied professionals.

A six-week rolling programme of exhibitions and activities for the Hub’s exhibition space has also been planned in collaboration with the Manchester School of Architecture.

Harry Rich, RIBA Chief Executive said:
“The RIBA Hub presents a fantastic opportunity for the RIBA to not only support our local RIBA members and students with a whole host of resources and events, but also to raise the profile of architecture in a very visible way on the Manchester high street.”

Professor Tom Jefferies, Head of Manchester School of Architecture said: Manchester School of Architecture welcomes this exciting collaboration with the RIBA, reinforcing our links with the profession and engaging our research driven work with a wider public audience. The Hub will add to Manchester’s vibrant architectural and design culture, providing a city centre location to exhibit and exchange ideas and discuss work.
