There are many examples of exceptional architecture around the UK, there is The Shard in London, the Manchester School of Art, the Birmingham Library and many more. One other building which is about to enter the national architecture race is The Everyman Theatre in Liverpool.
The building of the Everyman Theatre was recently entered in the competition for the twenty fourteen Sterling Architecture Awards. Theatre management has made it clear though that local community support is absolutely vital if the Hope St venue is to have a chance at winning the award. Furthermore, theatre bosses are urging the local community to vote for the building in order to win the world’s most prestigious architecture recognition – People’s Choice Award.
Everyman Theatre got fifty eight percent of all votes in The Guardian staged poll, now theatre management is asking the local community to back them up once more in order to snatch the People’s Choice Award. The iconic Liverpool landmark is currently celebrating its fiftieth anniversary, and what better birthday present than a renowned architecture award.
Although a port city, mainly associated with maritime trade (of different kinds), Liverpool is also a place of culture and refined entertainment, the Everyman Theatre being an example of that. The theatre building which was completed in March of twenty fourteen was designed by Haworth Tompkins. Since then the venue has won a number of awards, including The RIBA Northwest Building of the Year. Another recognition received by the Everyman in twenty fourteen was Best Performance Space, awarded by World Architecture News.
The Everyman is currently competing for the Sterling Architecture Award. The Award has been named after the renowned yet controversial British architect Sir James Frazer Stirling, accredited for designing some iconic buildings around the world. Some of the better known ones are Clore Gallery in London, the State University of Performing Arts in Stuttgart, the Staatsgallerie – again in Stuttgart. During the nineteen sixties, Sir James Stirling designed some of the most famous university campus buildings in the UK. Perhaps his only miss was the nineteen eighty nine bid to construct the Bibliotheque de France – his project entry was rejected. His last project was in fact complete post-mortem, in nineteen ninety seven, five years after he passed away.
Liverpool has lots to offer in terms of events, entertainment, places of interest, culture and arts etc. The city’s economy makes no exception, Liverpool is well developed and boasts strong local industries ranging from technology to man and van removals. Residents who are looking to relocate to, or around the city will enjoy the benefits of a strong residential building industry which has generated positive growth and profit for both businesses and investors. In simple terms this means there are more homes available for rent or purchase. More housing stock, on top of a well working economy means people are able to move around and live in better properties. This is also good news for local man and van companies, as well as all other related industries.
