Thousands paraded the streets and cheered in unison at the fireworks that symbolised the reopening of The Everyman this year and it would seem seem the sparks are still flying.
Tonight (16th October) The Everyman were contenders for the prestigious Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) sterling prize for excellence in architecture and they managed to bring home gold. The awards evening was founded in 1996 and named after the architect James Stirling. The Everyman were up against buildings such as The Shard and the London Aquatics Centre but the intimate play area and the sheer elegance of the rest of the building managed to be enough. Located in the historic Georgian Quarter of Liverpool on Hope Street, the innovative and striking facade of The Everyman comprises 105 people from all walks of life, a much deeper meaning that this building isn’t just The Everyman, it’s everyones.
They dazzle and inspire, ignite imagination, welcome and connect and consequently capture the hearts of near enough everyone who walks through their doors. We’re so lucky to have you The Everyman, we speak for more than just Liverpool when we say congratulations.
