NWDA cuts lead to Cube closure

A leading design centre in Manchester is to close next month after a significant share of its funding was discontinued by the North-West Regional Development Agency.

Cube, the Centre for the Understanding of the Built Environment, is an architecture and design centre incorporating a gallery space and education programme. It has failed to secure £150 000 from the NWDA this year due to a shift in the Development Agency’s funding priorities.

Graeme Russell, director of Cube, says, ‘It is very sad, but Cube is no longer sustainable.’
