  Urbis and Printworks
by sandysmith

Favorite thing: Much of Manchester has undergone regeneration - Ira bomb in the city centrre in 1996 saw to that - resulting in an exciting balance of contemporary glass-mirrored structures (such as the Urbis building) and the re-vamping of old derelict builgings - an example here being Printworks which was the ill-fated newspaper Tycoon, Robert Maxwell, printing emporium.
