Architecture Night 2019

Booking for Architecture Night 2019 has now opened.  

This great social and cultural evening will focus on the power of architecture to bring about positive change. It all kicks off at 7pm on Friday 18th October 2019.

The venue this year is the former Masonic Hall of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Antrim in Rosemary Street.  This three-storey stone piece of hidden Belfast was designed by Young & Mackenzie and is finding new purpose in the regeneration of Belfast City Centre.  At a time when interest in heritage-led regeneration is growing in Belfast, this former Masonic Hall provides a perfect location to celebrate local architecture.

We are delighted to welcome back our host who has been with us from the start in 2016, BBC’s Ireland correspondent Mark Simpson, who will masterfully guide us through the three parts of the evening. Part 1 confers Honorary Membership in recognition of those who have contributed to architecture in Northern Ireland.  Part 2 will focus on the best architecture students.  Part 3 will reveal the outcome of the Design Competition for Early Career Architects.

Each of the three parts to the evening will have its own distinctive live music and round of food. Once again there will be no set tables and a complimentary bar will be available throughout the evening. Dress is freestyle but warm.

Based on the success of Architecture Nights over the last three years we anticipate a crowd of around 300 people including architects working in all sorts of roles, architecture students, leading figures from the built environment sector and a wide range of key influencers. It is an event to which you may wish to invite clients or other guests.
