City in Transition Walks/ request for info
I know this may be all be a bit 'heritage' for some of you and i suspect they will be full of old codgers but i'm organising three guided walks over the next three weekends as part of City in Transition.
I'm taking the third one about post war stuff and at the end of this speil ive posted a few requests hoping some of you may be able to identify the buildings and their architects as ive not been able to find any info them.
The Twentieth Century Society exists to safeguard the heritage of architecture and design in Britain from 1914 onwards. These three walks devised and led by the North West group looks at Liverpool’s Twentieth Century architectural contributions.
Liverpool Between the Wars
Date: Saturday 12 August 2006
Meet at the Philharmonic Hall, Hope St
This walk will look at some of the best buildings in Liverpool city centre built between the two World Wars, focussing especially on the influence in the city of architect Herbert Rowse. Highlights will include the Philharmonic Hall, India Buildings and the above ground buildings for the Mersey Tunnel.
University Precinct Walk
Date: Saturday 19 August
Meet at Senate House, Abercromby Sq
The University of Liverpool has seen a prolonged and fruitful expansion since it’s founding in 1881. This walk will look at some of the more notable buildings built in and around the University throughout the twentieth century and will take in buildings by such notable C20th architects as Basil Spence, Maxwell Fry, Denys Lasdun and Tom Mellor.
Post War Liverpool Walk
Date: Saturday 26 August
Meet at the Metropolitan Cathedral Visitor Centre
The 1950’s and 1960’s are not considered by many to be a ‘Golden Age’ for architecture. But faced with the need for post war reconstruction and economic revitalisation there is no denying that it was time for bold ideas and one with a strong sense of style. This walk will hopefully appeal to those with strong opinions either way on architecture from the period.
Walks will last around 2 1/2 - 3 hours with a short break for refreshments.
All walks are FREE, but booking is essential as there are a limited 30 places per walk.
You can PM me if you are interested or my contact details are here:
