The seventh in the Liverpool Waterfront InterPro Lecture Series was held recently at RIBA North in Liverpool.
In 2016 14 built environment institutions – including the CIOB – joined forces to deliver a lecture series to celebrate the Albert Dock, which is due to celebrate 175 years in 2021. In 2019 the lecture series evolved to also focus on the Liverpool Waterfront.
The lectures are intended to study heritage-led waterfront regeneration, while providing a forum for networking and knowledge sharing. An event is held every six months in venues on Liverpool Waterfront. Each institute will lead a talk to explore the rich history and activities of the docks on the Mersey.
Each event will take the form of up to four lectures: one or two lectures focused on a facet of the Liverpool Waterfront and the others to explore how experience and knowledge gained has influenced, or is being reflected, in other projects elsewhere.
Organised and sponsored by RIBA North West, the most recent lectures were chaired by Paul Monaghan, Liverpool City Region design champion and director of Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, with speakers including writer and critic Stephen Bayley, architect Matt Brook and landscape architect Pete Swift.
The next series of lectures is currently planned for autumn and will explore servicing historic buildings, UN sustainable development goals, technology in buildings and sustainability.
