Over the FutureEverything festival weekend, a pop-up city will take over NOMA in Manchester. This will take the form of a speculative city, one imagined through conjecture and curiosity. Visitors are invited to experience future visions of city life, realised through extraordinary design fictions, art, architecture and family friendly workshops....
