Galway is a city which is looking to remodel itself for the emerging new age and is starting on the long-term conversations required to facilitate a significant transformation using work carried out by the Irish Cities group as jumping off point.
In support of the process and in pursuit of the mission to foster and promote best practise in urbanism generally the Academy, in association with the RIAI, is organising a conference in Galway in Spring 2023.
In advance of the conference and as part of the Architecture at the Edge Festival,
a full day Workshop will be held on Friday 07th October 2022, at the Mick Lally Theatre, Druid Ln, Galway.
The workshop will engage a wide spectrum of interested parties and will explore the issues, challenges and exciting opportunities which lie in wait for an Atlantic Edge City looking to recreate itself and provide leadership for other urban centres in the decade ahead.
Architecture at the Edge (AATE) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the promotion of architecture as culture. Established in Galway in 2017, it invites everyone to explore and understand the value of a well-designed built environment. We aim to demonstrate how design enhances everyday life and to inspire new ways of thinking about architecture.
