This coming Tuesday I’ve been invited over to Leeds to introduce a screening of the Terence Davies Liverpool documentary ‘Of Time and the City.’ It’s part of a series of screenings called ‘City Series Leeds.’ Showing city-based films and then discussing what might be learned from them to make Leeds a better city.
I’ll be talking a bit about Liverpool before the film and then taking part in a question and answer session with everyone else there afterwards.
So as part of preparing my own thoughts and to answer the obvious question people from Leeds might be asking – ‘Why have they asked him? – I thought I’d do this short post. Gathering together links to others of my posts that might be particularly relevant for Tuesday’s discussions, both in the Hyde Park Picture House, where the film will be shown, and of course in the pub after that.
There are around 360 posts on here now from the past two years. And though the vast majority of them concern Liverpool in some way, here are the ones particularly about the city, its architecture and its people.
First, for a good look at how the inner city is doing right now, these 2 posts about a walk and a bus ride round the city last Saturday:
Helping people get involved in designing their own places:
Places by Design
Remodelling the city centre:
The Paradise Project
And finally, two Leeds residents come to Liverpool:
From Leeds to Liverpool 8
I could of course go on. And you can too, if you want. Scroll through ‘All blog posts’ above. Or enter things like ‘Architecture’ ‘Empty Homes’ or ‘Housing’ into the search box on the right.
See you on Tuesday?
‘Of Time and the City’ is on at Hyde Park Picture House, Leeds. At 6:00pm this coming Tuesday, 27th May. Presented as part of the Screening Cities series in conjunction with the Culture Vulture and RIBA – Leeds Society of Architects.
