Suspended 18m above street-level lies the new 130m-long link bridge that will boost accident and emergency treatment by enabling critically ill or injured patients to be transported by helicopter directly to the city-centre hospitals from around the region. This includes transport to the Emergency Departments at Manchester Royal Infirmary (MRI) and Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital (RMCH) which are next to the link bridge.

The ‘box in box’ detailing of the main rehearsal hall at first floor level and the brick massing of the elevation base conceal voluminous spaces internally to allow daylight penetration via continuous glass roof lights, and for the rear Grade II listed façade to be on full view from within offering privacy to the neighbouring buildings.

Note from e-architect Editor Adrian Welch:

In 1989 I had the fortune to gain a place at Manchester School of Architecture, one of 67 students selected from around 1200, a record year for the university, probably partly a result of the Madchester music scene. The head tutor was Ian Simpson, with Alan Dunlop as a part-time tutor, then at BDP prior to moing back to Glasgow.

I had family in Lancashire so knew the city quite well. I loved my time studying, although my friends and I suffered quite a lot of crime and aggression. The city had such a vibrancy, with Affleck’s Palace for second-hand shopping and a wide array of music venues and clubs for night-time dancing.

In my third year I was also tutored by Stephen Hodder who went on to win the first Stirling Prize, later becoming President of the RIBA. His architects practice Hodder + Partners is still active in Manchester.

Whilst at the university I won a scholarship to study the current crop of architects in Finland. After a two-week trip in Summer of 1990 I returned to give a slide show to the Manchester Society of Architects.

In the Summer of 1991 I gained another scholarship, from Hulme Hall, and spent four weeks studying architectural expressionism and Cubism in Germany, Czech Republic, Austria and Hungary. This was a fun trip, starting and ending in Hamburg, with highlights being visits to Berlin and Dessau.

Whilst in Manchester I lived initially in Rusholme, then Victoria Park, and then again in Rusholme for my year out. I did my fourth year training at Michael Hyde and Partners, located in the lovely Barton Arcade in the city centre.
