LEGO UMIST : Tony Bolton


04.05.22 - 14.05.22

UMIST in LEGO by Tony Bolton.

UMIST, the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology, was largely built in the 1960s and designed by architects such as Cruickshank and Seward, however due to relocation by the current University of Manchester, the future of this campus and many of the fine buildings within it is currently in doubt.

The modernist architecture of the UMIST campus is presented here at the modernist gallery, built entirely in LEGO.

Tony Bolton has recreated many of Manchester's modernist buildings in LEGO, including the Piccadilly Plaza Hotel, the Essoldo Cinema in Stretford and the Kantorowitch Library at the University of Manchester.
