Architecture Group Meeting

May 24 @ 5:30 am - 6:30 pm
The Athenaeum Liverpool, Church Alley
Liverpool, L1 3DD United Kingdom

Architecture Group meeting: Wednesday 24 May, 5:30pm in the Library. The revamp of the Athenaeum Architectural Group comes at a most interesting moment. After decades of decline and neglect, followed by our culture-led renaissance, the city region is now seeing major investment and fundamental change in its built-environment. From the new container port to the Mersey Gateway Bridge, to the redefinition of our raison d’etre and growth in the visitor economy, change is in the air. “Architecture” in our city is no longer just looking back to past glories! There are exciting times ahead! The Athenaeum was founded 220 years ago as a sanctuary for men of affairs to consider contemporary challenges in changing times – “plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose” - albeit for our gender plurality!   So, don’t miss the opening event at which we intend to determine future activities followed by dinner with a keynote address by Suzy Jones Director of the Royal Institute of British Architecture (RIBA) North West.   If you’re not there, you might get talked about!
