05 MANCH­ESTER BLAZ­ING A TRAIL

Identity - - ANTENNAE -

Dutch ar­chi­tec­tural prac­tice Me­canoo is to de­sign a Dhs1.6 bil­lion engi­neer­ing cam­pus at the Univer­sity of Manch­ester. It will be one of the largest sin­gle con­struc­tion projects ever un­der­taken by a higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tion in the UK. Once com­plete, the project will be­come home to the univer­sity’s four engi­neer­ing schools, and two re­search in­sti­tutes from the Fac­ulty of Engi­neer­ing and Phys­i­cal Sciences. It will in­clude 70,590 square me­tres of mod­ern teach­ing spa­ces and fa­cil­i­ties that re­flect the chang­ing de­mands of stu­dents and staff for mo­bile and flex­i­ble work­ing. De­mo­li­tion on the site is al­ready un­der­way.
