RIBA North, 21 Mann Island, Liverpool Waterfront, now until 3 March
The team are delighted to announce the extension of current exhibition Céramica, with free family Clayplay workshop during half term.
The exhibition, combining traditional ceramic techniques with digital engineering processes, looks at the creation of meaningful and sustainable architectural elements and is in collaboration with ECAlab. It has proved such a hit with the visitors to RIBA North that the decision has been made to give further opportunity to February’s visitors, ahead of the installation of the centre’s next exhibition, opening in mid-March. Céramica is certainly appealing to not only those with an interest in sustainable architecture and design, but also those with an interest in ceramics and beautiful objects.
The public programme of free events running alongside Céramica has been extended, with the addition of an extra family-friendly Clayplay event during February half term and further tickets released for the upcoming curator tours. These free spaces have been much in demand, it is recommended to register your attendance as early as possible.
Saturday 27 January – Curator tour by ECAlab, 2pm - TICKETS
Saturday 10 February – Curator tour by ECAlab, 2pm - TICKETS
Tuesday 13 February – Half Term Clayplay Workshop, morning and afternoon timeslots - TICKETS
RIBA North is The Royal Institute of British Architects new national architecture centre which opened on Liverpool’s waterfront at Mann Island (next to Open Eye Gallery). The centre opened in June 2017 and is a place for everyone to discover more about architecture with exhibitions, talks, tours and activities as well as a café and shop.
At the heart of RIBA North is the City Gallery, a space for visitors to learn more about Liverpool’s past, present and future, including the Digital City Model, an interactive 3D model which tells a variety of stories about Liverpool and the surrounding areas. Alongside this permanent display, RIBA North hosts a bold programme of temporary exhibitions. Currently on display until the end of February, alongside the Céramica exhibition, are the architectural models of the six finalists of the Stirling Prize – the RIBA’s prestigious national competition to find the year’s best new building. Also on display is a selection of the best student entries of the RIBA’s President’s Medals Awards, showcasing the architectural stars of the future.
In the coming weeks RIBA North will be announcing its Spring/Summer programme along with a brand new café offering. This will be an excellent addition to the #Liverpool2018 programme during a very exciting year for the city, a testament to Liverpool’s appeal to visitors all year round.
