Manus Deery, Principal Conservation Architect in the Historic Buildings Unit of the Northern Ireland Environment Agency, provides a personal contribution to the UK City of Culture with this exhibition. The show illustrates the development of the city's architecture over time through 72 watercolour sketches, supplemented by brief explanatory notes. Today's city is a complex place, influenced by its site, available materials and local traditions, yet displays influences from ideas across the world. It is a city with places of great beauty, and a robust character making it a city to be proud of.
This exhibition is sponsored by Derry City Council's Heritage and Museum Service, and by The Inner City Trust and The Honourable The Irish Society. It is hosted by the Playhouse.
