The Making of Manchester’s Technical Colleges (1954-64)

This project is an investigation into the making of Manchester’s Technical Colleges (1954-64).

How these colleges came to exist, and their importance within the canon of Britain’s post-war architecture has been little explored and is, consequently, poorly understood. Through an understanding of the legislative and social contexts that gave rise to the need for technical education, examples such as the Manchester College of Building (1957) and the Domestic and Trades College (1960) will be identified as of a historically and culturally significant building type.
