The exhibit runs until June 30

Until June 30, the Millennium Library’s main floor will host a display showcasing modern architecture and landscapes of the University of Manitoba’s Fort Garry campus.

During the post-war years, architects, many of whom were graduates from the U of M, used campus projects to experiment with new technologies and materials for constructing modern buildings.

Explore archival photographs, drawings and construction materials. Learn just what makes the University of Manitoba campus modern and why modern architecture matters.

The exhibit is curated by Abigail Auld and Monica Hutton from the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation. The exhibit has been supported financially by the Faculty of Architecture Endowment Fund, University of Manitoba.

The exhibit complements a book that was published in 2013: University of Manitoba Modern by Monica Hutton.
