a modernist pop up shop – made entirely of cardboard!

16th – 24th of June at the Royal Exchange Theatre (daily 1pm-8.30pm)


For RIBA lovearchitecture festival 2012, the Modernist Magazine & the Manchester Modernist Society have collaborated with students of the Manchester School of Architecture to create a temporary ‘pop up shop’ at the Royal Exchange Theatre.

Made entirely of cardboard, the shop will stock a range of architecturally inspired designs from Tower Block tea towels to Manchester Map Hankys, all made by artists & designers from the region.

Special Thanks go to:

The Royal Exchange Theatre

The Students and Staff at the Manchester School of Architecture

Proceeds will help the not for profit Manchester Modernist Society continue to educate and inspire people about the 20th century built environment.
