The New, New Buildings of Hull

SPEAKER: Malcolm Sharman

Friday, September 9 at 1.30pm,
Wrecking Ball Arts Centre,

This presentation follows on from the selection of new buildings delivered in 2015 and highlights some of the major architectural developments which have much more recently made an impact across the city.

Rather than merely listing the buildings included individually, the new buildings will be presented in various categories of use.
Some stand-out developments, such as the Humber Bridgehead offices and showrooms, impress with their state-of-the-art accommodation. Organisations crucial to the life of the city, particularly medical, industrial and educational facilities have all commissioned buildings which enhance the image of their organisations within the local cultural environment.

A “Boom” in house building is increasingly evident in the Western suburbs and in the city centre around the Humber Dock area. Largely redundant business premises in the city centre have been renovated and adapted to change of use whilst the

City Centre Clearance has provided sites for the C4DI and the Bonus Arena.

The next major challenge must be to address “The Old Harbour” as an exciting waterfront destination.
