The RIBA Hub in Manchester is 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.
This new local centre for architecture will feature:
The RIBA Hub will also be an important centre for delivering seminars and CPD courses to RIBA Members and allied professionals. There will also be an events programme running throughout the year.
A six-week rolling programme of exhibitions and activities for the Hub's exhibition space has been planned in collaboration with the Manchester School of Architecture.
RIBA Chief Executive Harry Rich 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.'
