Incursions in the Knowledge Capital

A derelict city centre church became the venue for this installation exploring Manchester, its economic landscape and the public and private partnerships in Manchester City Council’s Knowledge Capital project.

Castlefield Chapel, designed by the same architect as Manchester’s famous Free Trade Hall, was temporarily revived by UHC as a gallery space. UHC designed specially created underfloor vitrines which were hand crafted in wood.

The exhibition was staged as part of Architecture Week 2006 and also included a guided bus tour around key Knowledge Capital and regeneration landmarks. The exhibition was accompanied by a publication and website.
