What next for Ulster Architecture? | Fri 7th Sept, 1pm

To kick off the European Heritage Open Days weekend, join us for a free lunchtime event at PLACE. Local experts will discuss the legacy of modern architecture in Ulster and consider what new architecture is on the horizon.

In the past number of years, new high-profile public buildings have opened: The Lyric (O'Donnell & Tuomey), The MAC (Hackett Hall McKnight) and the Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre (Heneghan Peng). Are they indicative of a renaissance in contemporary Ulster Architecture, or if not, what obstacles are there between us and better contemporary architecture in Ulster?

Speakers include Barrie Todd, Ciaran Mackel, Sarah Lappin, Alastair Hall and more.

Friday 7th September | 1pm | PLACE, 40 Fountain Street, Belfast, BT1 5EE.

Book online here or phone 028 9023 2524.
