Ive booked a couple of events for myself.
I'm going to Jonathan Flakingham's house
- it was nominated for the Stirling prize and is pretty sexy - and 31 Blackfriars Road
which is OMI Architects own offices for themselves and also Stirling nominated.
The Liverpool model looks great aswell - all you modellers (b08mmy, mancguy?) should go and have a look.

Some more stuff.

architecture week 2006

Architecture Week is the national public celebration of architecture featuring an exciting programme including walks, talks, tours, maps, events, visits to new buildings and architects' practices, exhibitions, family and children's activities, film showings and picnics which takes place in June each year.

(think I'll have that one)

Talk Architecture: How do you see the city in ten years?

Sundays 18 and 25 June, 11am-2pm

A provocative, informal panel discussion about the future of Manchester and where the city will be ten years from now. Featuring local architects, planners, engineers and thinkers, this event will look to debate a number of hypothetical scenarios about where the city might be ten years from now. Integrally it will look at what has happened over the last ten years of urban regeneration, and pose the questions; does Manchester actually have an urban grand plan?

Walk on the Wild Side: WILD WALK #1

Tuesday 20 June
Meet at Urbis
Picnic at 12.30pm-1.30pm

Led by David Haley, this inaugural day- long picnic event will kick off a series of 9 monthly urban picnics as part of a project that will result in an exhibition at Urbis in 2007.
