ABC is rooted in the pure ideals of mid-century modernism. Reinventing the world through fresh thinking, audacious design and an unwavering belief in the immense possibilities of a better future.
ABC stands as a meticulously curated media and talent centre for the city of Manchester, steadily increasing its significance within the city’s media production transformation. Our commitment to fostering this expansion and realising our building’s vision is the essence of the ABC mission.
This is the ABC credo.
Designed by architectural practice Leach Rhodes Walker and built in three stages between 1959 to 1965, The ABC Buildings are a new style for Manchester, spaces transformed for modern industry in a modern city.
The architecture, the Brutalist design; it’s true Sixties. The ABC Buildings have many desirable features, which are as relevant today as they were over fifty years ago. The Sixties was a decade of originality, it challenged established principles and created some of the best examples of sustainable architecture.
