Manchester moves closer to a new Factory

This is my home town and I am always proud of the city’s ambition and the quality of the architecture that has defined the city in recent decades.

Rem Koolhaas’ OMA have designed a 100M GBP new arts centre featuring a 7000 seat auditorium for arts and cultural events.

On a site that once housed the Granada Studios, the Factory is intended to significantly boost Manchester’s cultural capital. It’s an integral part of a larger project, which received a pledge of £78M worth of public money back in 2014 and will provide some 2,400 new homes, three hotels, as well as a commercial space.
