Liverpool Futurist: grandeur and frustration


Liverpool Modernist Society present: Jones The Planner lecture.

Liverpool Futurist, part of a journey through the Cities of the North for a book of the same name by Adrian Jones and Chris Mathews better known as Jones the Planner.

Through their books and blogs they explore the great post-industrial metropolises of Northern England including Liverpool:

“Certainly Liverpool is the grandest of the Northern cities but it is also the most inscrutable and the most frustrating. Here the disparity between past glory and present reality, between its potential and the banality of the actual outcomes in the built environment, are at their most extreme. In many ways Liverpool is less a Northern city than a World city.”

Come along to their talk on Thursday 4th May at 6.30 in LJMU Art & Design Academy.

Free to LJMU students & staff
