Tom Dyckhoff in Conversation

Waterstones Deansgate and the Manchester Modernist Society are delighted to welcome Tom Dyckhoff to the store to discuss his most recent book, The Age of Spectacle.

Join us on Thursday 6th July at 6:30pm when Tom will be in conversation with Eddy Rhead from the Manchester Modernist Society, before answering questions from the audience and signing copies of his books.

In The Age of Spectacle, Tom Dyckhoff tells the story of how architecture became obsessed with the flashy, the monumental and the ostentatious - and how we all have to live with the consequences. Exploring cityscapes from New York to Beijing, and from Bilbao to Portsmouth, Dyckhoff shows that we are not just witnessing a new kind of building: we are living through a fundamental transformation in how our urban spaces work.

Tickets are £3, redeemable against a copy of The Age of Spectacle and for more information, email or tweet us @waterstonesm

Tickets £3.00

When: Thursday 6th July at 6.30pm

Venue: Waterstones, Deansgate Manchester.

We look forward to seeing you there!
