Manufaktura is currently the largest arts centre, shopping mall and leisure complex in both, Poland and Europe. It was opened on 17th May 2006 in Łódź. 

It is one of the most successful projects of revival of industrial architecture. Reconstruction of the complex was performed in a way that would guarantee preservation of the genuine atmosphere of 19th-century Łódź and the factory of Izrael Poznański.
