An exhibition from the Royal Institute of British Architects about the climate emergency and its relation to architecture.
Tate Liverpool and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) are forming a new partnership on Liverpool’s waterfront. Tate Liverpool will move into RIBA North, Mann Island from 27 October 2023 to coincide with the temporary closure of the gallery at the Royal Albert Dock for redevelopment.
The two organisations will collaborate to deliver a programme of temporary exhibitions, family activity, public talks and other events inspired by the unique collections held by RIBA and Tate. The programme will focus on art, architecture and ecology.
The first exhibition in Tate Liverpool’s new home, Long Life, Low Energy: Designing for a Circular Economy draws from RIBAs collection and considers how the design, construction, maintenance, and demolition of buildings is vital in the journey towards a global reduction of carbon emissions.
As Tate Liverpool undergoes a transformation to its Victorian warehouse home, Long Life, Low Energy reveals how architects and designers are innovating to reuse and repurpose anything from small materials to whole buildings and how we might look to the technologies of the future to navigate the climate emergency today.
