Guest Lecture Series

Each semester the Liverpool School of Architecture holds an open series of guest lectures, with noted practitioners and academics from the fields Architecture, Design and Art invited to speak to our undergraduate and postgraduate cohorts.

These lectures are free and open to attend by members of public or professional . Registration required .

To improve accessibility many of the guest lectures are a hybrid format ( via a zoom link ) to enable participation should travelling to LSA not be possible.

Registration links are provided below for each lecture . 

Our Autumn semester open series runs on a Wednesday lunchtime at 1pm in Reilly Lecture Room 25 Abercromby Square L69 7ZN.

For any queries please contact Sandy Britton on  or email
