In this special summer season of The Infinite City, listen out for interviews with professionals whose careers have intersected with the city of Belfast and with the work of PLACE. But first, we have a live episode we recorded last October. Our venue was the amazing Sonic Lab at Queen’s University.
If you haven’t already heard it, Part 1 with Aisling O’Beirn and Garrett Carr is available now. Here, in part 2, our guests are Darran Anderson, the Derry-born, London-based author of Imaginary Cities and Agustina Martire, who came from South America by way of several other cities to settle in Belfast, as an urbanist and lecturer and an advocate of city streets. We also have a wrap up session with all four guests and some audience Q&A.
This live episode was the closing event of Open House Belfast, an architecture festival organised by PLACE that invites the public inside the city’s best buildings, engineering projects and artists’ studios. After a weekend of building tours, site visits, talks and artist performances, it was great to sit down with people who have studied the city (both Belfast and cities more broadly) to talk about urbanism in Belfast and beyond.
