Infra_MANC will provide a chance to look at the processes involved in the procurement, marketing and delivery of key infrastructural projects of the post-war era. The Mancunian Way, the never realised Picc-Vic tunnel, the Guardian Exchange and fanciful dreams of a city centre heliport will all be presented using artefacts found and recovered from the various archives and museums of the region.
Infra_MANC is part of Manchester Histories Festival on from 24th February–4th March.
The exhibition is curated by Richard Brook (Manchester School of Architecture) and Martin Dodge (Department of Geography, University of Manchester), with support and help from MIRIAD, Museum of Transport Greater Manchester, and Greater Manchester County Record Office with the City Archives.
