Millions of people across the UK now live in New Towns thanks to cross country planning after the second world war however, many are unaware of this local history. This event will allow the public to learn about this legacy in an engaging yet graphically inspiring exhibition. It is a chance for students to curate a live project whilst the public can engage in the work in which students are producing at Manchester School of Architecture. It is crucial that the audience will leave the exhibition feeling encouraged that the future of their cities are moving forward by the education of the past.
