From May 6th to June 30th 2014, the Millennium Library’s main floor hosted 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. Guests were invited to explore archival photographs, drawings and construction materials.

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