MediaCity: UK

This is an interesting development in urban new media and architecture, based in Manchester - it's called MediaCity: UK and, according to the website blurb:

MediaCity:UK is a new media city, an innovative, creative hub, to rival other new media cities emerging around the world.

MediaCity:UK is surrounded by water. At its heart is a triangle of iconic buildings, The Lowry, Imperial War Museum and a new media complex, home to the BBC.

A new network of tightly knit streets, squares and boulevards will cascade down into a huge waterfront piazza, a place to watch the sunset, enjoy a drink or a concert, and have some great conversations.

MediaCity:UK, based at Salford Quays, is Manchester’s waterfront. It enjoys all the benefits of the City Centre, with the space for an explosion of new media and creative industries.

MediaCity:UK is for people of all ages to live, to work, to learn, to create, to think, to relax, to visit, to enjoy…and to dream.
