Recent events at PLACE

RSUA Education Committee - QUB and UU together at last
26th March 2009

Working with the RSUA Education Committee, PLACE was pleased to convene the first official meeting between students of the University of Ulster and Queen's Schools of Architecture, last Thursday night.

The students are going to work together in delivering a project culminating in an exhibition to be displayed in PLACE later in the year.

PLACE at the Belfast Film Festival - The Lives of Spaces
1st April 2009

Meanwhile, PLACE was pleased to welcome Nathalie Weadick and Dobrawa Brach-Kaluzna of the Irish Architecture Foundation (visit their excellent website here), along with Hugh Campbell of UCD, to PLACE's event at the Belfast Film Festival last night.

Nathalie and Hugh are curators of The Lives of Spaces, Ireland's entry to the 11th Venice Biennale in 2008. Last night at the Studio Cinema in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter, they discussed the work of a film curator, and the role of film in presenting architecture - with particular reference to their role in leading this project. More info on the project on The Lives of Spaces website. The book to accompany the project is now available in the PLACE Bookshop for £15.

And afterwards it was back to PLACE for pizza!
