Architecture Centre

About

The Architecture Centre encourages everyone to discover, enjoy and get involved in buildings and places.

All are welcome to the free entry gallery on Bristol’s Harbourside (next to Pero’s Bridge), where you’ll find a programme of regularly changing exhibitions on an architecture and design theme. The Centre runs a wide-ranging programme of events including guided walks, talks and visits, and regular family activities. The Architecture Centre also works with schools and colleges, and is an Arts Award supporter (www.artsaward.org.uk).

The Centre also produces a digital resource, Bristol Opening Doors (www.bristolopeningdoors.org), where you can discover the stories behind some of Bristol’s best buildings.
