Architecture Night 2017
Friday 27 October 2017 is Architecture Night, a superlative social and cultural evening focusing on the power of architecture to bring about positive change. Organised by RSUA, and proudly sponsored and supported by Metal Technology, the event takes place in the Kings Works in the heart of Belfast’s Titanic Quarter, Belfast.
Inspired by the Society’s 2017 study trip experience of Copenhagen Street Food and the Meatpacking District in Vesterbro, for one night only, the 102,000 square foot industrial shed will be repurposed into a social space with an electric atmosphere.
Compered by the BBC’s Ireland correspondent Mark Simpson, Architecture Night will be an evening of three parts. Part 1 will focus on the best architecture students, Part 2 will reveal the outcome of the Belfast Flare Design Competition for early career architects and Part 3 will recognise the contribution made to architecture in Northern Ireland by Colin Davidson, world renowned artist and Jane Duncan, Immediate Past President of RIBA. Each of the three parts to the evening will have its own distinctive live music and round of street food which is being laid on by Yellow Door, one of Northern Ireland’s leading caterers.
In addition to Metal Technology, the event is also supported by JP Corry, Ceco, Hays and Catnic-Steel Lintels Ireland.
