Talk on Sliema’s built heritage
‘Sliema’s built heritage celebrated with faces’ is the title of a talk that architect Edward Said will deliver tomorrow at the Salesian Theatre, Sliema.
The talk will introduce the architects behind a selection of Sliema’s myriad of architectural pieces, some of which are considered icons of design movements which were short-lived, endemic and today endangered.
The speaker is specialised in building conservation and a student of Maltese architectural history. He was a founding member of the Sliema Heritage Society, which in 2010 was set up in a bid to foster an appreciation of the town’s architectural patrimony. The society works closely with Flimkien għal Ambjent Aħjar, the Sliema local council and other entities.
Said will show how, despite the town’s many losses due to incessant demolition and concreting, Sliema still boasts a great diversity of architectural styles.
The talk, organised in collaboration with Flimkien għal Ambjent Aħjar, will be held tomorrow at the Salesian Theatre, Ġużè Howard Street, Sliema, at 7pm. For tickets visit https://ticketengine.faa.org.mt .
