"Some buildings lie empty. Some are still busily in use. UMIST the institution is no more but the physical campus is still pretty much intact. For now.”

Knowledge and Work is a photobook celebrating the UMIST campus at a time when its future is uncertain. Photographer Bill Ayres has collaborated with designers Jacob Critchley and Jack Glover to produce a book of photographs that celebrates the architecture and landscape of the University of Manchester North Campus formerly known as UMIST.

Published by the Modernist Society, this is the first of three publications to be produced in 2016 celebrating and investigating twentieth century architecture in Manchester with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. With special thanks to G.F.Smith Papers.
