More About The Organisation
The Architecture Centre's principal aims are to demonstrate the value of good design and, by increasing people's awareness and enjoyment of their built environment, to stimulate the demand for design excellence.
Every aspect of the work undertaken by The Architecture Centre aims to:
Widen public awareness
Develop understanding and appreciation
Demonstrate the value of good design
Encourage good practice
The Architecture Centre is the leading regional expert on engaging the public with the built environment and championing the creation of better quality neighbourhoods, buildings and public spaces. Based in Bristol and relating directly to that particular urban environment we respond equally to the needs of the wider South West region.
The Centre’s programme includes exhibitions, events, lectures and critical debate, work with artists, and visits to inspiring buildings. Our learning programme delivers engaging built environment education to children and young people in the South West. We promote the value of good design - empowering communities undergoing change to shape their environment for the better, and working with built environment professionals, local authority officers and councillors to achieve design excellence.
The Centre is based on Bristol’s Harbourside and has an intimate and welcoming gallery, a shop specialising in architecture and design books and well designed gifts, and a seminar room for hire.
