PLACE at European Heritage Open Days 2014
Saturday 13 - Sunday 14 September 2014 / Belfast & Derry~Londonderry
2014 marks ten years since the foundation of PLACE. During EHOD 2014 we will look back at 10 Years of PLACE and look forward to what the future holds for the organisation and the wider built environment across Northern Ireland. The 10 Years of PLACE exhibition will be displayed at our new venue at 7-9 Lower Garfield Street, Belfast.
Our popular architecture tours make a return to EHOD as we aim to use the city as the exhibition. Uncover the colourful and electric Art Deco Belfast and learn of the intricate architecture and construction techniques that contributed to the Churches of Belfast City Centre.
New for 2014 is Georgian Belfast, a tour of the city’s architectural gems from the Georgian period (1714 – 1837), whilst in Derry~Londonderry we will walk the walls with a local architect to discover the architecture of the Maiden City.
Full details and booking links will be released in August 2014.
