2.30 pm. CACity round table discussion


We had a great discussion around the general topic of 'Cinema and Architecture in the City'. Dr Stefano Baschiera and Dr Gul Kacmaz Erk have reported back about the projects they lead, film industry+urban generation, and digital urban mapping (database), respectively. Gul has also talked about her Liverpool visit/presentation about our database project at the Provoke PhD Seminar Series, kindly founded by QUB Architecture. We are delighted to let you know that CACity and CAVA (Centre of Architecture and Visual Arts,) at University of Liverpool will be collaborating in the future. A special thanks to GIS expert Lorraine Barry who has worked hard on the first draft of our Belfast Cinema Locatipons prototype.


After the discussion, we had the privilege to attend a fantastic talk by Dr Laura Rascaroli of University College Cork. This lecture, a collaboration of CACity and QUB Film Studies, was one of the best architecture-film talks we have ever attended. For the film Laura talked about, Marc Isaac’s Lift (2001). We also discussed the possibility of collaboration of QUB and UCC. .
