The Antrim Coast in the Age of Industry, 1750 - 1890 / Lecture Series at PRONI

PRONI will be delivering a series of lunchtime lectures in April, May and June 2015 examining the arrival of Victorian technology and industrial activity in the Antrim coast and Glens. Until the 1800s much of the Antrim coast and Glens was wild and hard to access. During the nineteenth century the landscape was opened up and efforts were made to bring about an industrial revolution, like that of Belfast, in the country villages and peat-bogs.

All lectures will run from 1pm - 2pm in PRONI, 2 Titanic Boulevard, Belfast, BT3 9HQ. Lectures are free but advanced booking recommended. Email [email protected] or phone 028 9053 4800.

Raviv Ganchrow: Urban Modes of Listening - Wed 10 Dec, 1pm - 2pm

Raviv Ganchrow: Urban Modes of Listening is a free seminar organised by Recomposing the City at the Sonic Arts Research Centre on Wednesday 10th December, 1pm - 2pm. 


Raviv Ganchrow’s (1972) work focuses on interdependencies between sound, location and listener, aspects of which are explored through sound installations, writing and the development of acoustic forming and vibration sensing technologies. Recent installations examine context-specific sites in contemporary modes of listening. His on-going Listening Subjects project examines the contextual circuitry of listening whereby audibility, surroundings and subjectivity are conductive of one another. He has been teaching architectural design in the graduate program at TU Delft and is currently a faculty member at the Institute of Sonology, University of the Arts, The Hague.

Undocumented - The Architecture of Migrant Detention / Wed 17 Dec 2014, 12noon at PLACE

Undocumented: The Architecture of Migrant Detention (The Architecture Observer, 2014) is graphic novel that documents the invisibilized architectures of incarceration. Situated in Canada, this book explores the growing global industry of immigration detention, and questions the role of architectural design in the control of migrant bodies in such spaces. Using the conventional architectural tools of representation, we spatialize and confront the silenced voices of those who are detained and the anonymous individuals who design spaces of confinement.




A presentation and conversation led by Tings Chak will focus on questions of architectural ethics in the design of spaces of confinement such as prisons and detention centres, and place it in a larger context of global migration and displacement.

Tings Chak is a multidisciplinary artist and architect whose work draws inspiration from anti-colonial, migrant justice, prison abolition, and spatial justice struggles. She is an organizer with No One Is Illegal - Toronto and the End Immigration Detention Network.

Books will be available for sale. For more information please visit: www.undocumented.ca.


Date: Wednesday 17 December 2014
Time: 12noon - 1pm
Venue: PLACE, 7 - 9 Lower Garfield Street, Belfast

What next for Ulster Architecture? | Fri 7th Sept, 1pm

To kick off the European Heritage Open Days weekend, join us for a free lunchtime event at PLACE. Local experts will discuss the legacy of modern architecture in Ulster and consider what new architecture is on the horizon.

Photo by Gary Potter.

In the past number of years, new high-profile public buildings have opened: The Lyric (O'Donnell & Tuomey), The MAC (Hackett Hall McKnight) and the Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre (Heneghan Peng). Are they indicative of a renaissance in contemporary Ulster Architecture, or if not, what obstacles are there between us and better contemporary architecture in Ulster?

Speakers include Barrie Todd, Ciaran Mackel, Sarah Lappin, Alastair Hall and more.

Friday 7th September | 1pm | PLACE, 40 Fountain Street, Belfast, BT1 5EE.
