Architecture Night 2018
Friday 19th October is Architecture night, a social and cultural evening that will focus on the power of architecture and its ability to bring about positive change.
Organised by the Royal Society of Ulster Architects (RSUA), and proudly sponsored and supported by Metal Technology, the event will take place in Carlisle Memorial Church, inner north Belfast.
Designed by WH Lynn and opened in 1875, Carlisle Memorial was included on the World Monument Fund Watch in 2010 – a biennial list of the most endangered cultural and heritage sites in the world. At a time when the value of built heritage is high on the agenda, it is a very fitting location to celebrate local architecture.
BBC’s Ireland correspondent, Mark Simpson will guide guests through the three parts of the evening. Part 1 will focus on the best architecture students, Part 2 will reveal the outcome of the #MyBelfastIdea Design Competition for Early Career Architects and Part 3 will recognise the contribution made to architecture in Northern Ireland by two non-architects.
Based on the success of the Architecture Nights in 2016 and 2017, this event will be very well attended with Architects from all sectors of the building industry, architectural students, leading figures from the built environment sector and a wide range of key influencers.
In addition to Metal Technology, the event is also supported by JP Corry, Ceco, Hays and Dixons.
