Manchester Modernist Society present: An education in concrete: The built works of Gordon Hodkinson
In tandem with an exhibition of the drawings of Gordon Hodkinson at MMU Special Collections, Dr. Richard Brook will lead a walking tour of some of Manchester’s university buildings that Gordon had a hand in designing during the 1960s, whilst he worked for Cruickshank & Seward.
We will visit the university first, then the former UMIST Campus and conclude our tour with a viewing of Gordon’s student drawings and some selected material from the Cruickshank & Seward Archive.
Meet: Oxford Road, outside the Alan Gilbert Learning Commons, University of Manchester, M13 9PS
Finishing point: MMU Special Collections exhibition.
