London, United Kingdom
National architectural association the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has announced that it is launching an innovative and culturally-rich new ‘weekly live arts magazine’ next week to promote architecture and the arts in the UK, HEM News Agency exclusively reports.
‘The Architects Underground’, which will take place weekly from the 18th September 2019, is being hosted on Wednesdays at RIBA’s Art Deco headquarters at Portland Place in central London. The event will attract experts from the world of modern British and international architecture, along with voices from the fields of design, art, movies, music, fashion, TV, theatre and robotics. Guest performers, presenters and artists will appear each week alongside innovative speakers shedding light on new ideas, inspirations and different ways of life.
The inaugural show next week will see award-winning architect/designer Anna Liu take the stage as she explores with the audience design’s intersections with the natural world. Liu was the powerhouse behind the recent AI Show held at the Barbican venue, also in London.
The Architects Underground show will also play host to an on-site bar and food court, serving cocktails inspired by legendary architects as well as non-alcoholic drinks. The food is based on classic British cuisine. Selected prints, posters, t-shirts and books will also be on sale to guests. Entry is free to members of RIBA and university/college students, while other visitors can purchase tickets for GBP £15 a head from the show’s ticketing partner Eventbrite or at the venue’s door with a free complimentary cocktail thrown in.
