This live episode was the closing event of Open House Belfast in Oct 2018, an architecture festival organised by PLACE that invites the public inside the city’s best buildings, engineering projects and artists’ studios. The podcast took the form of a discussion, in the Sonic Lab at Queen’s University, hosted by PLACE with people who have studied the city (both Belfast and cities more broadly) to talk about urbanism in Belfast and beyond. The four guest interviewees, included the writer Darran Anderson and the architect Agustina Martire, (episode 2). In episode 1 Aisling O’Beirn discusses her artistic work on the politics of place through site-specific projects in Belfast, and writer Garrett Carr, author of The Rule of the Land: Walking Ireland’s Border, tells us about his experience making maps in the edgelands and subverting official mapped spaces. Plus, a reading by the writer Eunice Yeates and a performance by Mark McCambridge, who makes music as Arborist.
